A Cymoedd learner from the ‘A Level Class of 2022’ has received The Worshipful Livery Company of Wales Award in recognition of her outstanding academic achievements.
The college was delighted to welcome Mr. Geoff Hughes, Past Master of The Worshipful Livery Company of Wales accompanied by Liveryman, Miss Margaret Davies, to the Nantgarw campus to present the Award and a cheque for £250 to Brooke Pothecary.
Brooke, 18, from Porth studied at the college’s A Level Centre achieving an impressive three A* grades in English, Drama and Religious Studies alongside an A in the Welsh Baccalaureate, securing her place to study Italian and Japanese at Cardiff University. The A* learner, who is passionate about exploring new places, has developed a love of languages during her travels over the years and dreams of becoming an Italian language teacher in Australia, where Italian speaking staff are in demand.
Presenting the Award, Mr. Geoff Hughes, congratulated Brooke on her A Level results and on securing a place at Cardiff University. He explained one of the primary aims of The Worshipful Livery Company of Wales is to promote education in Wales and the ‘School Awards’ provide the opportunity to recognise learners who have achieved outstanding results.
Speaking after the presentation Brooke said, “I am proud to receive this Award in recognition of my A Level results; I was so happy to have achieved the grades that I needed to secure my place at Cardiff university and have to thank all the tutors at the college for their support. I am so excited to start my course in October”.
Commenting on Brooke’s achievements and the Award, Jonathan Morgan, Principal said, “We are so proud of Brooke. This is a great achievement for her, and I know that she has worked hard to achieve the grades required by Cardiff. We wish her every success for the future and I’m sure, given her commitment, she will achieve her ambition. I hope that Brooke will stay in touch with the college to inspire future learners. I would like to thank The Worshipful Livery Company of Wales; we are grateful for their continued support of Cymoedd learners and I’m sure they would agree – Brooke is a worthy recipient of the Award”.
