We welcomed Dr Julian Hector, Head of BBC Natural History Unit as our special guest at the 23rd Annual Prize Giving ceremony.
Prizes were presented to almost 250 pupils who were awarded for high achievement, excellent attitude and public spirit within the community.
Although the names of many of the prize winners were known before the evening, there were surprise awards announced at the ceremony itself: Congratulations to Jeffymol Joseph and Niamh Fullerton (Science Award), Ben Papworth and Blanka Szantho (Sports Award), John Gompels (Year 11 Award), Harvey Nash (Year 13 Award), Isabel Romero (Catherine Hughes Award for Community) Kundai Vurayayi (Sixth Form Areté Award), Ethan Osborn-Clarke (St. John Paul II Prize), Laurence Villiers Prosser and Fortune Onovo (Vice Principals’ Awards) and Niamh Bailey and Daniel White (Principal’s Award).
A huge number of children received nominations from staff and a scrupulous effort to be fair, resulted in the final list. We hope that pupils deserving of an award, but who did not receive one this year, will be recognised at Prize Giving celebrations in future years. A copy of the Prize Giving programme is below.
