Lord Lexden Presents Awards to 39 Outstanding Students
At the annual
CIFE Academic Awards Ceremony held at the House of Lords on Thursday, 7th April, Lord Lexden presented awards for
academic excellence to thirty-nine students who achieved remarkable A-level and
GCSE results last summer. The recipients
- some British, some from overseas - were warmly applauded at the presentation,
all having studied at sixth-form colleges belonging to the Council for
Independent Education (CIFE), of which Alistair Lexden is President. The
award-winners typically average 95% + scores in all their A-level exams.
said: “Year after year statistics produced by leading international
organizations show that our independent schools and colleges provide an
education that ranks among the best in the world. No wonder families here and abroad are so
keen to send their children to CIFE’s successful member colleges. Their outstanding A-level results prove once
again that they have fulfilled the trust placed in them. Their mingling of great talents and different
cultures enrich our country and other nations”.
