Sprowston student wins award after perfect A-Level score at Paston College, North Walsham

A Sprowston girl has won a national award after achieving 100pc of the marks available in her psychology A-level this year.

Former Paston Sixth Form College student Amorette Perkins, 18, has completed a remarkable double after also getting a perfect score for her AS-level in psychology in 2010.

This performance has been recognised by the British Psychological Society, which awards a prize each year to the top students sitting A-levels in the subject.

Principal at the North Walsham college, Peter Mayne, who has now seen two Paston students win the award in three years, said: 'What a fantastic achievement. We are immensely proud of Amorette's achievement and of the work of her psychology teachers at Paston.'

Amorette, who completed her A-levels at Paston this summer and is a former student of Sprowston High School, is now studying politics, psychology and sociology at Jesus College at Cambridge University.

The prize that Miss Perkins has won consists of a British Science Association bursary and a year's student membership of the British Psychological Society. She will be presented with her award later this year at one of the society's two national 'Psychology4Students' events, to be held in Watford and Preston.
