Prizes for Students!

Friday, January 17, 2020

Bridgnorth Aluminium have teamed up with Oldbury Wells in a new enterprise to reward students for outstanding work produced each term. Teachers of five key subjects: Modern Foreign Languages, English, Design and Technology, Science and Maths, will nominate one pupil per term to each receive a prize to the value of £100. Simon Mapp, School Governor, organised the project and liaised with the local firm to get the competition off the ground. He said, “We are delighted and most appreciative of the generous support offered by Bridgnorth Aluminium. It will really make a difference in these key year groups and subject areas.” 

The school held its first prize-giving ceremony on Thursday 16th January to congratulate the five winners of last term’s competition. Charlotte Palmer-Hollinshead of Bridgnorth Aluminium presented the students with their £100 gift vouchers. The winners are: 

  • Modern Foreign Languages – Finlay Walker, Year 7 – for achieving the highest percentage mark in French classes, for showing enthusiasm for languages and promoting learning amongst his peers. 
  • English – Jude Watters, Year 11 – for achieving the highest percentage mark in the English mock exams. 
  • Design and Technology – Grace Martin, Year 10 – for an excellent home learning project. 
  • Maths – Alex Edwards, Year 10 – for his tremendous contribution to facilitating the learning of younger pupils. 
  • Science – Eleanor Wenham, Year 10 – for making excellent progress, particularly in Physics, and working to a very high standard. 

The winners will be able to use their prize to purchase items such as a Google Home speaker, gadgets from the National Science Museum and book vouchers, to facilitate learning related to their subject. 

Head of Maths, Katy Barlow said, “We are aiming to use the prizes to raise Year 10 achievement in Mathematics. We are looking for students who show excellence in the subject through effort, resilience, creativity and collaboration with others.” 

Sally Lawson, Head of English, also commented, “We are confident this competition will motivate our highest achievers in Year 11 to achieve the best possible grades.” 

“We are thrilled by our partnership with Bridgnorth Aluminium,” said Lisa Thomas, Principal Deputy Headteacher. “They are helping us to recognise student achievement across different areas of the curriculum through their generous sponsorship of these excellent prizes.”

Congratulations to the winners, enjoy your well-earned prizes! We look forward to the next prize-giving ceremony which will be at the end of the spring term.
