Spalding High School students have been celebrating success and achievement with their annual prize giving.
The prizes awarded relate to students’ performances in the last academic year.
A prize for outstanding academic achievement is awarded usually to one student in each form and a form tutor’s prize is awarded to the student who makes outstanding progress or makes the best contribution to form life or shows excellent leadership skills.
Certificates of merit are awarded for a variety of reasons – for academic achievement, for effort, progress, or for contributions to sport, drama, music, form life or school life.
There are also a range of special prizes and sporting team trophies.
The range of awards reflect the really varied aspects of life at Spalding High School – in addition to the academic life of the school, there are a huge range of activities and opportunities in which students can become involved, many of which are spoken about in the students’ presentations.
Rewarding those who excel academically but also congratulating those who have taken part in sports teams, in concerts and drama, those who have consistently supported others and have involved themselves in community work and fundraising
The school says it is rewarding those students who excel academically and who have made great progress through their hard work, but also congratulating students who have taken part in sports teams, in concerts and drama, those who have consistently supported others in their form or worked to help younger students and who have involved themselves in community work and fundraising.
The guest for Upper School prizegiving was Mrs Rebecca Handley-Kirk, head of Sir Isacc Newton Sixth Form Free School. Steven Wilkinson, head of Spalding Grammar School, was guest for Lower School prizegiving.
