Special Achievement Awards

Allerton Grange School hosted its first ever Special Achievement Awards for Key Stage 3 students on Wednesday 9 May. Students, who were nominated by each subject area for their positive attitude to learning, were invited to the special ceremony to receive their awards and hear their teacher’s wonderful comments, which were all full of praise. The parents of the nominees were also invited to the event, held near the end of the school day, to see their children receive recognition for applying themselves whole-heartedly and going above and beyond to produce excellent work.

Mr Donlon, Key Stage 3 and 5 Director, said “The aim of this event was to individually recognise our younger students in Year 7 and 8, with the involvement of their parents’, and to hopefully set them on a path for further success as they progress through school.”

On behalf of the school, thanks are extended to Mrs Hosty, Behaviour and Welfare Leader for Key Stage 3, and the Key stage 3 team, for organising the event which is hoped to be the first of many.

Art said of Olivia ‘She has an infectious enthusiasm, and really supports those around her.’

French said of Lloyd ‘He is a fantastic student who has a great deal of talent in French. He has a great sense of humour, makes the most of every lesson and always gets involved. A pleasure to teach!’

Geography said of Maja ‘She always tries her best with tasks, is attentive and is making good progress. She is a polite and helpful member of the class.’
