Academic excellence rewarded

In an initiative designed to incentivise academic endeavours, Bridgnorth’s Oldbury Wells School have teamed up with a local business to reward outstanding work produced by their students. Bridgnorth Aluminium have agreed to provide a monthly prize to the best performing student in a number of key subjects. The prize, valued at £100, will be presented to one student of Modern Foreign Languages, English, Design and Technology, Science and Maths, with the recipients being chosen by the respective teachers.

Deputy head Lisa Thomas said, “We are thrilled by our partnership with Bridgnorth Aluminium. They are helping us to recognise student achievement across different areas of the curriculum through their generous sponsorship of these excellent prizes.”

The first prizes were awarded this January, marking the successful launch of the scheme. Head of Maths Katy Barlow said, “We’re aiming to use the prizes to raise Year 10 achievement in mathematics. We’re looking for students who show excellence in the subject through effort, resilience, creativity and collaboration with others.”
