Hartlepool Sixth Form recently hosted an awards ceremony to celebrate the hard work of both students and teaching staff.
Students from across the sixth form were awarded for each of the core values; Authentic, Respectful, Innovative and Ambitious. Certificates were also given to students with 100% attendance and for outstanding student contribution.
The awards ceremony raised awareness of student achievement and recognised those who are making successful progress with positive praise. Craig Beattie, Creative and Media Technician and Keiron Braithwaite Maths Lecturer were also awarded for their hard work and dedication to the education and experience of each student.
Mark Hughes, Head of Hartlepool Sixth Form said:
“It’s always important to celebrate success regularly throughout the student journey. We celebrated students with 100% attendance, outstanding achievement and students that demonstrate our core values across each curriculum area. I’m so proud of students at Hartlepool Sixth Form and their evident dedication and commitment to their studies. However this requires devoted and enthusiastic cross college staff to help support students throughout their studies. Therefore it was great to acknowledge individual colleagues too that demonstrate our core values.”
Jennifer Lawson, Hartlepool Sixth Form Humanities, Social Sciences and Creative Curriculum Manager added:
“I am so proud of every student who has been awarded for their hard work at our values awards. In particular I’d like to express my congratulations to Emily Ward, who is always thinking innovatively and outside the box – she recently helped the class to understand Dracula though the metaphor of crisps! Amber Smith is another fantastic ambassador for the sixth form and one of the hardest working students I have come across. She is relentless in the amount of work she completes at home and at college. She is not satisfied with anything less than A despite her target being a C!”
Daniel Liddell, A-Level student continued:
“I was extremely proud and excited to receive an award. It was great to be recognised for all the work I have done over the term, and it will motivate me to carry on working to the best of my ability.”
The awards ceremony takes place at the sixth form on termly basis, to reward and encourage students to keep working hard and striving to achieve their full potential.
