Earlier this month, Milsted Langdon visited three educational establishments in Taunton to reward talented students.
The first event was held at Queens College and saw Reece Munson receive a prize for his hard-work and interest in Business Studies, for which he has a natural ability. Reece has conducted considerable research into different businesses and was chosen for the prize due to his outstanding mock examination and controlled assessment results, which place him at the top of his class. For his controlled assessment, Reece investigated a home care business where he researched how different stakeholders were affected by a decision to expand the business. Reece will continue to develop his knowledge over the next two years as he studies at A-level
Milsted Langdon’s next stop was Taunton School to celebrate the achievements of Thai student Kevin Chinnaprapa. His teachers describe Kevin as “one of the brightest students I have taught,” adding: “that I have to make no allowances for the fact that he is not a native English speaker and he is still able to produce written work of high quality is an important reason for our selection.” Kevin gained over 90% across his 2 AS modules last year one of them at 97% and he was one of the key members of the Target 2.0 team that competed in the Bank of England competition.
The third destination was Kings College where Sam Underdown was awarded the Business Studies prize. He was described by the school as being “diligent and conscientious in all he's done, often going above and beyond the bounds of the A-level specification and what we'd expect of him. He has a naturally enquiring mind and an innate sense for the factors which influence business success. It has been a privilege to teach someone of his calibre during sixth form.”
Nigel Fry, said: “We have enjoyed successful relationships with our local schools and college for a long time and we are passionate about supporting and encouraging the talent of tomorrow. Reece, Kevin and Sam should all be very proud of themselves and I wish them every success for the future.”
