Last Friday, Highclare Senior School held its annual Prize Giving Ceremony.
In the presence of invited guests, the school celebrated the achievements of pupils in U3 to U6 during the 2020/2021 academic year.
Prizes for Outstanding Academic Achievement in a number of subjects were awarded to pupils who had performed particularly well in their GCSE and A Level exams. Prizes were awarded for creative writing, Take Charge, speech and drama, music, sports, attainment, effort and progress. House trophies were awarded, with York collecting The House Point Trophy, congratulations York!
Mrs Flowith, Chair of Governors warmly welcomed guests to the ceremony and Dr Luker’s Headmaster’s Report reminded all of the wonderful accomplishments and experiences senior school pupils can be proud of.
It was a pleasure to welcome Nasstassia Hylton and Mrs Angela Moore back to Highclare School as our Guest Speakers.
Miss Hylton is an ex-pupil of Highclare School – a member of Lancaster House – who left in 2001 as Head Girl and is now a practising barrister specialising in family law. Miss Hylton spoke with great pride and fondness of her time at Highclare and how the morals instilled during her schooling still impact her life today.
Mrs Moore joined Highclare School in September 2006 and completed 15 years of dedicated service to the Senior School, firstly as an English
teacher and then taking on a school-wide pastoral role before becoming, for the last nine years, Head of Senior School. It is with great joy that Mrs Moore returned to Senior School to present the inaugural Angie Moore Trophy, a trophy awarded for kindness and empathy.
Throughout the proceedings musical interludes were beautifully performed by Cadence Ball, Julian Hau, Rhapsody Choir, Sophia Jamil and Isabel Masaun.
Congratulations to all of the award winners and grateful thanks to all who contributed towards the staging of this event. We now look forward to celebrating the successes of this academic year.
