A TOP student has been awarded a £1,000 scholarship.

Rebekah Priestly, a former pupil at St John’s College in Southsea, was given the cash at the University of Worcester.

She was one of 112 students who were given a scholarship during two ceremonies last week.

Rebekah, a second-year geography student, was given the cash for her achievement in 2013/14.

She said: ‘I was very surprised that I was chosen to receive the scholarship award, but feel proud of myself.’
