William is to be heartily congratulated for achieving such outstanding A level results; 4 A* and an A is a remarkable achievement! As his Housemaster, I know how hard William has worked for this success and he has now put himself in an excellent position for his application to read Economics at Cambridge University following his Gap Year. However, William is more than just a talented academic. He was heavily involved in Rendlesham and as my Deputy Head of House was pivotal in its smooth running and successes over the year, of which there were many. William deserves great credit for the way in which he effectively balanced his studies with a whole host of extra- curricular activities. He achieved the gold Duke of Edinburgh Award, a notable achievement in itself, and rose to the rank of sergeant in our CCF. William is a talented rifle man and he led the College shooting team with aplomb. William now embarks on a Gap Year and will soon be departing for the Far East, starting with work in a financial services firm; it is also typical of him that he has taken it upon himself to learn Mandarin whilst out there. I have no doubt that William will continue to make great strides in whatever he does and his future is very bright indeed.
