High achieving pupils from Wisbech met a world champion during a visit to London.

Thomas Clarkson Academy pupils Bethany Ellerby, Albert Smith, Keeley Morris and Alex Ives were honoured for their GCSE achievements.

The teenagers – who are all now studying A Levels at the Academy – met special guest Hannah Cockroft, a British wheelchair racing athlete and double world champion.

The youngsters attended the prestigious Central Hall, Westminster, along with students from schools across the country.

They were presented with a certificate and a £20 voucher in recognition of their effort and achievements.

The event was organised by PiXL, a collaboration of school leaders, which focuses on supporting and developing GCSE and A Level results.

TCA Principal Clare Claxton said: “These students deserve the recognition – they worked immensely hard and are great advocates for TCA as an academy where learning and achievement is at the heart of everything we do.”
