Four students of the Bridge House College, Ikoyi, Lagos have bagged the 2019 Outstanding Cambridge International Learners’ Awards in the AS & A’ Level results.

The school’s authorities regard the awards as a reaffirmation of the culture of excellence and hard work for which Bridge House College is reputed for over the years, it said in a statement announcing the awards.

The primary purpose of these awards is to celebrate and recognise the success of high-performing Cambridge learners and the partner schools that have exemplified Equality Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) and Child Protection policies, the school added.

“Congratulations to the award winners David Neye Okorogheye and Stefanie Chinasa Iheasirim who emerged the overall best in Biology, Chemistry, and Physics respectively in Nigeria.
