Nahian Ahmed was our highest achieving student in the summer of 2019. He is an outstanding student who was conscientious in his learning. He served as a Senior Prefect and as Deputy Head Boy.
We were invited to nominate a student for the British Education Awards, and we had no hesitation in putting Nahian’s name forward. We were delighted to hear that he had been chosen to attend a prestigious awards ceremony in Manchester, where his exceptional achievements were recognised.
The following is part of what we wrote in support of Nahian’s nomination:
“Throughout his five years at The Radclyffe School, Nahian Ahmed was an exemplary student and an outstanding role model to his peers.
From the beginning he showed a great enthusiasm for extra-curricular activities, alongside demonstrating his academic prowess.
His enthusiasm and dedication continued as he entered Key Stage 4, the start of his GCSE studies. His ability in Science subjects was reflected in his involvement with the Go4Set Challenge, a competition aimed at building key skills in STEM subjects. Working with engineers from a national construction firm, Nahian and his team examined environmental issues, focusing on recycling of food waste. The team won the Best Overall Project award in the North West.
At no time did Nahian allow the pace of his progress and achievement to drop. In Year 10 he became an active member of the Student Council. Accompanying his study of Business, he was a keen member of our Young Enterprise team.”
Nahian perfectly combines the virtues of exceptional personal achievement with a commitment to teamwork and co-operation. His sporting ability was always evident, and in Year 10 bore fruit, as he was a member of the successful Boys’ football team that year, ending a successful season with victory in the Oldham Schools’ Cup.
His eventual reward at GCSE, passing all subjects with the highest grade possible is testament to this exceptional young man.”
