Two St Leonards Academy students have been awarded the Mike
Baker Scholar of the Year Award for their involvement in the Villiers Park
Scholarships programme. This programme aims to inspire some of our students to
aspire to university in the future where there may be no history of higher
education amongst these students’ families. Katie in Year 10 and Ben in Year 11
were the very worthy recipients of this award at a presentation evening at
Sussex Coast College on 4th July.
The Mike Baker Scholar of the Year Award recognises just one
Scholar in each year (across the schools in Hastings) who has excelled in all
elements of the programme in the last academic year. The criteria for
shortlisting included being on target for high level of attainment; excellent
attendance at and participation in all events and activities; exemplary
attitude and demonstration of resilience. Very well done to Katie and Ben!
