The A-Level Biology, Chemistry and Physics student was presented with the award in front of 180 of his peers, staff and parents.

Thomas, who has offers to study Microbiology at the University of Manchester and the University of Liverpool, commented: “My time at Abbey College Manchester has been invaluable and I cannot thank the staff here enough for helping me achieve this level in my studies. I will miss the college but I am excited for what the future will bring.”
