A BRAINY Malvern College student has won a prestigious award in national competition.

Aidan Baird won a gold medal certificate in the Biology Challenge - a national contest testing student's knowledge of the natural world - putting him in the top five per cent of the 32,500 who entered.

The 15-year-old will be invited to the Royal College in London where he will receive his award at an event attended by presenter of BBC Coast Professor Alice Roberts.

A spokesman from the college said: "In his year group Aidan is not only one of Malvern College’s top academics but he also excels at athletics in which he represents the school at the triple jump.

"He is a great all-rounder."
