KS4 Awards Evening

Award winners

Pupils, parents and staff gathered on Thursday 14th September to recognise the efforts and achievements of Key Stage 4 pupils during the 2016/17 Academic year.

The awards were presented by motivational speaker Levi Francis who experienced a troubled upbringing following his parents’ divorce and had significant behavioural problems whilst at secondary school.  Levi talked about how he turned his life around through education, gained a First Class Honours degree and is now a trainee actuary.  His talk clearly inspired our students.  When asked by Levi what they wanted to be their responses included a surgeon, an astrophysicist and a stockbroker!

Pupils were rewarded for outstanding achievement in subject areas, for setting an example as a year leader and for exceptional contributions to the school community.

Jo-Anne Hoarty, Headteacher at St Paul’s, said:  “All of our nominees and winners have truly done the best that is possible as reflected in our school motto.  They have demonstrated that they are making the most of every opportunity and are growing and developing the wide range of gifts and talents that will equip them to go out into the wider community, or even new communities, and begin to change the world.”

Some notable winners included David Boakye, who won awards for English, Religious Education and was awarded the Victor Ludorum prize for his excellence in representing the school in athletics.  Teachers said that David has been a role model to others in his class, through the way he works and conducts himself in school.  They said he showed true grit, determination and resilience, staying positive and taking all advice on board.

Lucas Churchill received the award for History and was also the recipient of the Chaplaincy Support award.  Teachers nominated Lucas as he has gone above and beyond in his commitment to fundraising activities, mass involvement and also care and concern for other pupils. 

Pamela Reyes received the Computer Science award for being proactive and a very good team player, with an excellent understanding of programming techniques.

Students received a certificate and trophy and category winners were also given vouchers.
