On Thursday 25th May, Richmond upon Thames College (RuTC) A Level student Tjalle Rumley received the Committee of South London Principals Best Learner Award at the House of Lords.

Tjalle, who is in his last year at RuTC studying A Levels in English Language and Literature, History and Geography, was chosen by RuTC staff for the award for showing commitment and diligence to his work, displaying a genuine interest in his studies and playing an active part in enrichment activities.

Tjalle has a positive outlook on college life and is described as a mature, thoughtful and dedicated student. He has been highly praised for his work as a Student Representative where he gathers student voice and regularly participates in meetings with the teaching body.

Tjalle was accompanied at the awards by his mother, father and Deputy Principal, Curriculum and Student Services at RuTC, John O’Shea.

John commented "all of our students at Richmond upon Thames College have worked incredibly hard this year and we are looking forward to this being reflected in their A Level grades and vocational assessments this summer.

We are particularly proud of Tjalle’s achievements and ongoing commitment to college life and I congratulate him once again for this truly deserved Best Learner Award and wish him every success at Aberystwyth University and his future career."

Tjalle has also been awarded a scholarship to Aberystwyth University to study a BA in International Politics and History for being one of the 50 highest achievers in the Entrance Scholarship exam.
