Nicole Castillo Yr 8 and Jordan Egerton Yr 10 along with the Vice Principal Mrs Gorman were invited to receive the award on behalf of the Academy at the House of Lords by Lord Knight of Weybridge, on Monday 29 April 2013.
This is a prestigious award provided by the nationally recognised HTI (Heads, Teachers and Industry Ltd) who are a not for profit organisation with over 25 years proven track record working across business, education and government to raise the aspirations and employability of young people. They challenge, stretch and develop leaders of schools, colleges and academies who go on to inspire our next generation. Over 20,000 school leaders have been trained and developed by HTI in 10 years.
Both students have participated in a range of activities offered here at the Academy, which help to build up those skills that companies recognise as being important, not only in the world of work, but also contribute to a successful society. All students are encouraged to participate in extended activities that are on offer as well full participation in the enrichment programme across years 7 and 8.
Well done to all students and staff!
