Lord Glenamara memorial prize
One of our talented students has been recognised for her academic success and voluntary work with a prize given to commemorate a politician who championed education in the North East. Annalise Murray, year 12, was a runner up in The Lord Glenamara memorial prize which was established to reward academic performance, citizenship and an interest in history, politics, or public service from young people in the North East.
Education Secretary Justine Greening presented Annalise with the award at a reception held at Imperial College London on Thursday 9 February 2017. Annalise went down to London with her Mother to collect the award.
The prize is open to school pupils in years 11 and 12 across the North East of England who have shown: a strong academic performance across a range of subjects, a civic contribution – particularly volunteering personal time for activities such as: mentoring younger pupils, helping with extracurricular events, working with a youth group or a charity outside school hours and an interest in government, education, history or public service.
