The inaugural awards ceremony took place in London on Monday 30th January and saw Amina attend alongside nominees from across the country. Her dedication and commitment during her five years at Whalley Range led to ultimately outstanding GCSE results, including an A* with distinction in Further Mathematics.
Mrs Mills, Deputy Headteacher for Curriculum and Learning, said of the award:
We’re all very proud of Amina’s achievement in her GCSEs and it is gratifying to see it recognised by the British Education Awards. It is very rewarding for the school, and especially her class teachers who offered endless support, to see that all of her hard work and dedication has resulted in such outstanding outcomes. We know she will be just as successful in all her future endeavours and look forward to seeing where her studies take her.
Twenty-three winners were announced at the ceremony and prizes were handed to students across the full spectrum of education in subjects ranging from engineering and technology to music and the arts, agriculture, healthcare and cookery. Winners had also demonstrated an exemplary level of commitment to their studies, or another activity, beyond their mandatory learning requirements.
