Bladon Students Academic and Personal Progress Celebrated at LA Graduation Event

We are very proud to have celebrated fantastic achievements with D this term, who attended the North Yorkshire Virtual School Graduation ceremony (via Zoom of course!)
She was chosen to attend this glittering event, to recognise her amazing progression both academically and personally.
D joined Bladon House School in April 2018 and has gone from strength to strength every single day. Her greatest achievement being her maths progression, having hated this subject initially, she is now a maths convert and it’s now her favourite subject by far! D always works extremely hard, with a positive learning attitude and a strong work ethic, and a keenness to learn.
Having recently achieved the Aim Award Extended Certificate at Entry Level 3 which encompasses elements of maths, English, science PSHE, IT, food technology, and PE, she is currently working towards the Entry Level 3 Diploma alongside a dual qualification of a Level One Extended Award in maths, which is truly amazing!
D is our first Head Girl here at Bladon, which is an enormous accolade, and a role she takes very seriously. She is involved in staff interviews, meeting Ofsted inspectors and greeting visitors onsite, meeting potential new students on Zoom, to give them a taste of life at Bladon, to name a few of her duties.
She is also a NAPPI trainer which carries a lot of responsibility, helping staff to understand amber scales and develop their practice further in supporting young people.
D also works hard in the Blue Room sessions and has started a fantastic initiative in a series of “Dear D” videos as the Bladon Agony Aunt, to help other young people onsite who may be having problems, by providing possible solutions. It was amazing that one of D videos was shared at the event to encourage everyone to stay positive in these Covid times.
Having celebrated in style, D is now looking forward to her next steps and moving onto college in the autumn term.
