Excellence in English

This week, the English department have nominated their first students for the new ‘Excellence in English’ award!

To be nominated for this, students have to show consistent effort and be enthusiastic in every English lesson as well as involving themselves with class discussions and be working hard to reach their target grade.

Deserving students from KS3 and KS4 will be nominated weekly by their English teachers. These are the ‘Superior Students of the Week’.  The names of these students will then be displayed on the board on the English corridor and parents will receive a text home in recognition of their childs’ achievements.

At the end of every half term, a draw of all of the Superior Students will be made and the two winners will have a photograph taken for the display, receive a certificate and a letter home to celebrate their success in becoming our Excellence in English award winners.

Congratulations to the first award nominees!

Said Jamal Picked As A Finalist

As many of you will know, we nominated Said Jamal in Y11 for a Youth Sport Trust award which recognises young people who have shown resilience, leadership and determination through sport.

Said was picked as a finalist for this award from an extremely high number of entries.

Last night we attended the presentation dinner at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry. Sadly Said did not receive the overall award as this went to another remarkable young man who had also overcome a great many difficulties in his life and is now inspiring others in the world of tennis. However, we were far from being disappointed as to even get to this stage was incredible.

During the course of the evening, Said was lucky enough to meet Kate Richardson Walsh, captain of the gold medal-winning Olympic hockey team and the team of amazing women who rowed across the Atlantic.

It was an amazing evening and as always Said was a fabulous ambassador for Clifton, sport and young people in general.
