News: New High Pavement awards recognise student success
High Pavement Sixth Form has introduced a new ‘Student of the Term’ awards scheme. The termly awards aim to recognise progression, hard work and the achievements of first year and second year A Level students.
Lecturers nominated one student, per year group, for each subject, and members of our High Pavement Society were given the very difficult task of choosing four students (per year group) from a possible 25 subject areas.
The eight winners were joined by their friends and family for the awards event on the 1st February. Each student was presented with a special High Pavement pin badge and certificate by the President of the High Pavement Society, Ken Kirk.
Year one student, Paige Roe, was nominated by her PE lecturer for 100% attendance and punctuality, her excellent assessment grades and self-motivation.
I believe these awards are a valuable opportunity to gain an even further passion for our A Level subjects, and as a sportsperson myself, I appreciate competition can be an amazing form of motivation. The awards are great to add to our personal statements and even CVs going forward.
“Knowing that our teachers recognise our abilities on an individual level is very fulfilling.— Paige
Ken Kirk commented: “We were delighted to be asked to be on the selection committee for these awards. In a sense, we represent the roots of the College, which go back well over 200 years, and yet they still stand. We’re very proud of our history, and it’s an honour for us to share the memories, traditions and values of the old High Pavement School with current students at the College.”
