World Class Students Attend Awards Ceremony
We were delighted to accompany some of our students, and their proud parents, to the prestigious annual World Class Schools Awards Ceremony held at St. Thomas’ Hospital in London on Thursday evening, 6th December.
Being a World Class School affords many opportunities for our students. This year, four of our Year 12 students, Zohaib Malik, Isha Patel, Caidie Samra and Reyna Sandhar, were formally designated as assessors for the World Class Schools accreditation process following their successful work in the assessment process of schools achieving ‘World Class Schools’ status this year.
To achieve this, they spent many weeks assessing the quality of the bids from applicant schools and observing these schools in action during the assessment day activity earlier this term. Reyna Sandhar received a special commendation at the Awards Ceremony for her work in the role.
They commented: "Reyna is a real team player. She was unphased by being asked to move project teams on the morning of the assessment centre and quickly established strong working relationships with her fellow shadow assessors."
In addition, two of our Year 9 students, Grace Moongo and Matthew Taylor, were shortlisted in the final 11 winners for the national World Class Schools essay competition. Students worked with Mrs Bram to produce an academically researched essay in response to the title:
‘How do the experiences of young people at school affect how healthy a lifestyle they adopt?’
Particular congratulations go to Matthew Taylor who was awarded 2nd place in the competition which judges, including Professor Chris Bonell of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, declared was of undergraduate quality.
