Headteacher’s Values Award winner
The Headteacher’s Values Award was presented to Taryn Hodgson, in Year 13.
Taryn was nominated by Ms Johnson, who wrote: “Taryn is an exceptional student who consistently demonstrates several, if not all, of the Richmond School values. She is exemplary in many ways; she is the most conscientious learner who gives 100% to all of her subjects, being both thoroughly independent but also comfortable asking for help and advice and acting on it; she is a pleasure to teach, showing respect to staff and peers alike.
Taryn takes responsibility for her own learning and progress; she worked especially hard in the preparation of her application to study veterinary medicine and has received offers of a place at university for this highly competitive course. She is also a Student Leader and has involved herself in many ways in the wider life of the school and Sixth Form.
Taryn is a “go to” person when a job needs doing, she just gets on with it. In all of this, Taryn is modest and unassuming and the perfect role model of a hardworking, mature and reliable student. I cannot think of a student who deserves this award more than she does.”
