British Education Awards
In January, Year 13 pupil, Evanna Woodside and recent past pupil, David Byrne were finalists at The British Education Awards (BEA) in the GCSE and A Level categories respectively. BEA have been established to promote excellence in British education. This award recognises the value and importance of education and learning as the foundation to a good quality of life and for the future success of our Nation.
The BEA identifies and celebrates individuals who have excelled within our British education system. In doing so, this award acknowledges that success comes down to personal endeavour and application. Educational attainment is not possible without the desire and commitment of each student to further themselves through knowledge and learning.
The gala award ceremony took place in the Hilton, Manchester. David was overall winner in his category. Unfortunately, he was unable to attend the event but Ms Gildea accepted the award on his behalf. Evanna commented on her experience, "It was a memorable event celebrating the success of many young people from across the UK and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.”
