A high achieving science student has been honoured during a special award ceremony.

Jasmine Bayliss-Dagg, 17, of Great Cornard received a trophy and £100 worth of books tokens as a prize for obtaining ‘outstanding’ grades in her triple science GCSE examinations.

Jasmine gained an A in biology and A* in chemistry and physics. She also gained A* in French, history, mathematics, philosophy, physics and statistics. Jasmine recorded another A in English.

The student was presented with the award by Joanna Williams and Emma Mobbs of Sudbury based opticians Wardale Williams, which sponsored the award.

The school’s assistant headteacher Amie Butcher, said: “The Wardale Williams Award is given to the science student we believe demonstrated both an outstanding study ethic and a high level of interest and commitment to the subject.

“The award also reflects the individual’s performance at GCSE science and we congratulate Jasmine on her fantastic achievement. Jasmine is an extremely conscientious student, who always has her head in a book and we wish her all the best for the future.”

Emma Mobbs, Wardale Williams practice manager, said: “As opticians we very much work in a science orientated profession, so sponsoring this award is a good fit for us.

“We always try to support other local groups and educational facilities wherever possible and we are very proud to have been able to present this award. I would just like to say huge congratulations to Jasmine”.

The teenager is now at the sixth form at Thomas Gainsborough School to study maths, further maths, physics and chemistry.
