Head of Business Education at King’s College Taunton, Liz Gregory, said: “Thomas is truly one of the most outstanding students I have had the pleasure to teach. He is a natural economist whose agile mind could engage with complex ideas and theories with ease. He relished the challenges that A-Level Economics presented to him, often incorporating his own research and reading into his work, demonstrating his love for the subject. He has a conditional offer from Cambridge University to study Economics, which we have every expectation that he’ll take up in the next academic year.”
