Huxlow’s annual Presentation Evening for outstanding achievements
On Wednesday 7th November 2018, Huxlow held its annual Presentation Evening, to award students for a huge range of outstanding achievements. Our special guest for the evening was Luke White, a former Huxlow student. His engaging and entertaining speech about his career in the music industry, was a great inspiration to our current students.
Awards were then presented by Luke and Mrs L Gauvrit, Assistant Headteacher, to our current Year 8-11 students for their achievements over the course of the last academic year (2017-18):
- Endeavour Awards: Certificates are awarded to those students who have consistently produced good work throughout the year in five or more subjects
- Progress Awards: These are awarded to students with special educational needs for a variety of reasons
- Best and Most Improved Student Awards for each curriculum area: The Learning Leader or Head of Department announced the reasons why each student had been nominated to receive their trophy and certificate. Committed, conscientious, responsible, outstanding, exceptional, creative, enthusiastic, passionate, talented and dedicated are just some of the adjectives which were used excessively throughout the evening.
- Gerald Prince Award: Named in honour of a former member of staff, this award goes to the best overall male and female student in Year 9.
- Steph Reynolds Award: Again, named in honour of a former member of staff, this award goes to the best overall male and female student in Year 8.
- House Captains and Senior House Captains: A new addition to the Presentation Evening programme, House Captains are the students who have recently been elected by their peers to lead in House activities over the coming year.
- Head students: Having undergone a challenging application process, these sixth form students represent Huxlow at many events both within the school and in our community.
- College Council: Students who have been selected by their peers to represent their year group’s views were recognised for their commitment.
- More Able Awards: Students who have completed the MA Honours Programme, part of a range of extra provisions made for more able students both in and outside of lessons.
