Headteacher’s values award winner: Philippa Kind
The Headteacher’s Values Award was presented to Philippa Kind, Year 9. Philippa was nominated by Mr Moohan, who said: “Philippa has had a brilliant term in Maths. She is talented, highly conscientious and often has an ear to ear smile on her face. Out of the 4 tests so far this term, Philippa has only dropped 3 marks in total. This puts her comfortably top of set one in Year 9; quite the achievement. I have nominated Philippa because of the grit she has shown recently under difficult circumstances. A close family member has recently passed away and Philippa missed a significant portion of the last topic.
“Philippa showed impressive independent study skills, staying on top of the work showing true grit and resilience. Of course Philippa scored 98% in the test for the last topic, the second highest mark in the group. This was particularly impressive and shows what a bright future she has ahead of her. Philippa is not only a sound mathematician but a superb, well-rounded character, whom I am glad to have met and taught.”
