Shortlisted Finalists

Charlotte Pyther – Claydon High

Charlotte has overcome huge barriers and, despite this challenge, she has been determined to attend school whenever she can as well as catching up on all missed work and controlled assessment. Despite the challenges she has faced, she achieved an A grade in her Year 10 Science GCSE, and is predicted future A and B grades. Charlotte is a school prefect and shows exemplary behaviour; students look up to her and she is an inspiration to all.

 

Irna Manguerra-Bridle – Samuel Ward Academy

Irna’s teachers describe her as a day-to-day inspiration for all students and teachers around her. Her maths teacher was astounded when she achieved full marks in her GCSE prep exam – the first time he had this happen in 15 years of teaching. However, what makes Irna stand out, is a passionate willingness to work with her fellow students to help them improve, sharing her revision ‘secrets’ and methods unreservedly.
