Guy Receives Highly Commended for RGS Submission

Fourth Form pupil, Guy Milton-Jenkins, was recently awarded one of three Highly Commended awards at this year’s Royal Geographical Society (RGS) Young Geographer of the Year competition.

His essay was titled ‘What is the geography of your favourite place?’ Entrants were required to explore their chosen locations in depth, considering how local, national and global processes shape it and what people and connections make it meaningful.

Guy, who competed in the Key Stage 4 category, produced a very thorough and thoughtful analysis of Cardiff Bay. His research included how its increasing popularity has affected the lives of inhabitants, past and present, and how the city surrounding the Bay is currently home to one of the largest variety of ethnic groups in the UK.

Compiling his research into an informative poster, Guy displayed Cardiff Bay’s political, social, environmental and cultural geography, including additional knowledge of the area.

The competition was of a very high standard, with over 1600 entries submitted across all key stages.

Last week, Guy collected his award in a prestigious ceremony at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) in South Kensington, London.

This was a fantastic achievement for Guy, and one that will certainly lead to future opportunities.
