Achiever’s Awards 2020

Dear All,

Hello to all of our Leavers this year! Much to our dismay we are unable to send you off with the
usual Achiever’s Evening and Awards Ceremony this year, hence this online Awards Celebration instead.
First of all, we would just like to say Well Done—you have all achieved so much during your time at St George’s School, and each and every one of you will carry our pride with you on your journey to the next stages of your lives.
And now a word from Sue Holman, Head Teacher.

Dear All,

Achiever’s Evening Award Ceremony this year. It is an important night for those young people and their families who are leaving us.

Deputy Head’s Award 2020
This year I have decided to give the Deputy Head Teachers Award to a young man who has really impressed me since joining St George’s in September 2017. This student joined our 6th Form provision and was a very quiet young man, quite anxious and understandably nervous about joining our school.
However, over the last three years I have seen him grow in
confidence and become less anxious. This was particularly
noticeable during the Key Stage 5 Residential at Stoats Farm with Island Adventure Activities in the summer of 2019 when this student joined us every day and took part in some very challenging activities both in the sea and on land. The increase in confidence was very clear and this student tried his best at all times. In 2020 this young man’s confidence and maturity has continued to grow and I am pleased to say that this year the Deputy Head Teacher Award is going to Matthew Churches. Well done Matt we are all very proud of you and wish you the best of luck as you move on to the next chapter of your education.

Head Teacher’s Award 2020
This year my Headteacher Award goes to 2 young people who I have admired but for different reasons.
The first young man is Sam Michie. Sam has to overcome
medical difficulties which impact on his day to day life. This has not stopped him however, especially in his love of performing arts. He has taken lead roles in our school shows and has carried on regardless of adversity. He shows great courage in all he does and as a result has achieved so much both academically and socially.

The second young man is Adam Richardson. Adam came to us after a very difficult start to his life. He has gone from strength to strength de-spite little formal primary education. He is a talented sportsman, his tenacity and work ethic is something to be admired and his skill in woodwork is astounding.
Both young men are inspirational and it has been my pleasure to watch them grow, develop and mature in the time they have been at St. George’s. Well done to you both and thank you to both families for working with us so well over the years.
