Headteacher’s Values Award Winner
The Headteacher’s Values Award was presented to Max Percival, in Year 8.
Max was nominated by Mr Swanwick who wrote: “During Tuesday’s Joe Root Challenge Cup match Vs St Aidan’s, Max demonstrated a number of our school values. The team found themselves in a little bit of a predicament with wickets falling at regular intervals, however, Max showed great resilience and independence in helping to calm the situation, showing excellent teamwork alongside another student to stop the rot at a time when St Aidan’s were in the ascendancy. With a mixture of attacking flair and watchful defensive work, Max steered the team to a respectable total of 88, scoring a brilliant 57. In reply, Max then opened the bowling and with such a small total defend, Max bowled incredibly well, bowling 4 overs, 3 of which were maidens, and only conceding a paltry 4 runs for his 1 wicket. This gave the team an excellent base to work from, with our Year 8 Boys going on to win the match by 26 runs. I believe Max has displayed four key Richmond School values in Excellence, Teamwork, Independence and Resilience whilst helping to guide the team to victory.”
