Cicely Street Mellor in 13HP has been awarded the UBS prize for outstanding achievement. She won this award on the basis of her excellent results at GCSE level and at AS level. Her involvement in charity work, including the visit of her singing group to townships in South Africa during the summer holidays, was also noted.
Cicely is one of only 75 Year 13 students selected from all over the UK. She will receive the award at a special ceremony at the UBS Head office in Broadgate London on Tuesday 11th October. Last year Matt Bridge was a winner of the same award. He has now started his studies at Cambridge University.
Cicely is applying to study Spanish and Portuguese at university.
