Year 11 PRIDE Awards

I was honoured to welcome so many of our Year 11 students and their families to our annual PRIDE awards on Tuesday. Over 50 students achieved the coveted PRIDE award, which rewards excellent learning and attendance throughout the year. Thank you to our school Governor, Mrs Schofield, who presented the awards and to the staff of Turing College for their support. Thank you also to Mr Beaumont, Head of year 11 who presented the event.

Not only did we award certificates to students who had achieved PRIDE awards in Year 11, we were also delighted to give special awards to students who have achieved PRIDE awards in each of their five years with us. Well done to:
