Nineteen-year-old Imogen Rimmer is following in her sister’s footsteps. In 2010 her elder sister Isabel won the coveted Cup for A-level Geography at Tunbridge Wells Girls Grammar School. Three years on and now it is the turn of Imogen, who has been awarded the prize for gaining the highest mark in her year for her Geography A-Level.
The prize is sponsored by Tonbridge-based housebuilder Millwood Designer Homes as part of its prestigious Encouragement Pack initiative that it runs with a number of schools in Kent and East Sussex.
Last week, Imogen returned to the school to meet Millwood’s Sales Director Philip Brown, who presented with the winning trophy along with a £50 cheque and £50 book token.
Imogen was delighted to receive the award saying, “Just like my sister, geography was one of my favourite subjects at school so it was very rewarding to gain the highest mark in my class. Obviously, there was a bit of competition at home because my sister had previously won the award so it was a relief to have won it as well!”
Says Philip Brown, “It was lovely to meet Imogen. Just like her sister, she is a very intelligent young woman and I was pleased to hear that she is currently studying Biology at the University of York. She would like to become a neurologist or neuroscientist so she has a very exciting and rewarding career ahead of her and I wish her luck in her chosen path. I also understand that there is a younger sister so I will be looking out for Rimmer number three in a few years time!”
