TOP student William Cullen has won the highest achievement for a St John Ambulance cadet.

The 16-year-old former Mayville High student was awarded the Grand Prior Award after completing a range of courses including first aid and expeditions over five years.

He is at South Downs College but returns to Mayville in Southsea regularly to help coach five to 10-year-olds.

Gill Rickards, who helps the school’s St John Ambulance division, said: ‘It’s a great achievement for William and we are all proud of him. I’ve seen him grow in confidence over the years while he’s been working towards the award which has given him excellent skills for life.’

William is among six Mayville students who have gained the top award since the division was launched 10 years ago.
