Our weekly celebration of students’ excellence.
The Book of Excellence is a striking celebration of the school’s ethos. Created from our students’ design concepts, at its heart the book is building a permanent, ever-growing record of our students’ achievement and excellence throughout the school.
Each week a student from each year group is chosen from staff nominations, their success recorded in the book for everyone to see. The pages build up an archive of distinction through the year.
Arifa (Year 7) nominated by Miss Atkinson
I nominate Arifa for her outstanding attitude to learning, not just in lessons but with her home learning too.
Last week I handed out Gold Grammar booklets to be completed this term. Arifa has completed hers in one week to a very high standard, with 100% into every task and PROUD presentation.
Umar (Year 8) nominated by Mrs Harrison
I would like to nominate Umar for the Book of Excellence.
Umar is an unassuming member of Year 8 who always follows the Five Respects. His attitude to learning is A or B across the board and he is on target to achieve at least his expected grade by the end of Year 8.
Mifthaur (Year 9) nominated by Mr Lunt
Mifthaur is a polite and pleasant young man who is always willing to help and always gives his best in school.
He is making at least expected progress in all his subjects with an excellent attitude to learning. Mifthaur’s behaviour and attendance are fantastic and teachers often comment that he is a pleasure to teach.
Isaam (Year 10) nominated by Mrs Richardson
Isaam joined my class part way through the year and has settled in fantastically.
His attitude to learning is exemplary and he is a role model to others. He has attended revision three times a week for the last month in preparation for his GCSE exam and puts in countless extra hours of revisions at home.
This is paying off and he is making great progress. He is polite, respectful and is a pleasure to teach.
Mumina (Year 11) nominated by Mrs Taylor
Mumina has consistently demonstrated an excellent attitude to learning in every Art lesson since the start of her 3-year GCSE course.
Her focus, determination and outstanding work ethic both in her class and homework, combined with regular attendance at after school mastery sessions and holiday boosters has resulted in some absolutely beautiful work. Her calm, quiet nature, her maturity and resilience make her an outstanding role model to younger students and her peers and I’m sure she will achieve an excellent grade in Art.
