The Yorkshire Accountants celebrate the success of student at The Grammar School at Leeds

A pupil at The Grammar School at Leeds has been commended for her success in economics by local accountancy firm, Thomas Coombs.

Eden Malca was awarded the Thomas Coombs prize for excellence in Economics 2019 at the school’s Year 13 prize-giving ceremony, which took place ahead of the students’ Graduation Ball on 29th June 2019.

She was selected by staff for the award as she had worked exceptionally hard throughout the course and had always sought to perform at the highest level.

Eden proudly achieved an A* in her recent mock exam for economics and is hoping for a similar result when the A Level results are announced in August, so that she can take up her offer to read economics at university.

Peter Sawrij, a Director at Thomas Coombs, attended the event and got a chance to meet with Eden and congratulate her on her win.

Speaking after the ceremony, Peter said: “All of the staff spoke very highly of Eden and it is clear that she has a real passion for economics.

“She should feel immensely proud of what she has achieved and we are delighted that the school has invited us to sponsor an annual prize for an outstanding sixth form economist.

“It is only right that we recognise and celebrate the excellence of pupils who may one day be the next leaders of enterprise and business in the UK.”

Known as The Yorkshire Accountants, Thomas Coombs has a long history of supporting local schools and organisations near to its offices in Leeds, which is why it chose to sponsor an economics prize at The Grammar School at Leeds.
