Kate goes to top of the class in art and design


Former Mayfield School pupil Kate Saldanha has won an award from Cambridge International Examinations for her outstanding performance in achieving the highest mark for Cambridge Pre-U in Art and Design in the June 2015 public exams while at the school.

Kate, who currently studies project design at Edinburgh University, was among 26 students who achieved the highest marks in Cambridge Pre-U subjects. All winners were rewarded with an official Cambridge certificate recognising their achievement.

Head of ceramics at Mayfield, Tim Rees-Moorlah said this achievement recognised Kate’s talent, dedication and commitment.

He said: “I was overjoyed to hear that Kate achieved her outstanding award. The national standard of work for Pre-U is exceptionally high and it is a clear recognition of the quality and maturity that Kate achieved in her submission. She has set a high bar for the other Pre-U students in our current sixth form but Mayfield girls are good at rising to a challenge.”

Michael O’Sullivan, Chief Executive, Cambridge International Examinations said: “Congratulations to Kate who has worked so hard to achieve this success in her Cambridge examinations. Topping the list of candidates in a Cambridge Pre-U subject is a

performance of the highest calibre. I offer sincere congratulations for this outstanding achievement.”

One hundred and seventy UK independent and state schools teach Cambridge Pre-U, which is recognised by universities in the UK and a growing number in the US, including all Ivy League colleges.
