Double Award Win for The Worthgate School
The Worthgate School is celebrating two award wins in recognition of excellence and achievement.
Winner of the Independent Schools Association (ISA) Award for Excellence and Innovation in Mental Health and Wellbeing 2022
The ISA Awards recognise excellence and innovation and celebrate the breadth of quality and provision in independent education across the UK. This year, The Worthgate School scooped the "Excellence and Innovation in Mental Health and Wellbeing" award. This is a testament to a deeply embedded culture of care with a 24/7 digital safe space accessible to all students and a "Need to Talk" programme.
"Thank you to all staff and students who make The Worthgate School a positive place to work."
Acting Principal, Worthgate School
Rudolf Eliott Lockhart, Chief Executive Officer of ISA, commented:
"The Worthgate School has built a culture that encourages discussion around mental health and wellbeing and normalises the importance of accessing support. This leaves students with self-care techniques that are now implemented in their daily lives."
Dr. Nicola Robinson, Acting Principal of The Worthgate School, said:
"The ISA praising our continued commitment to creating opportunities to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing in our school community is a real accolade. Thank you to all staff and students who make The Worthgate School a positive place to work."
Sixth form student takes first place in the ISA National Art competition
For the second year in a row, a Worthgate student has taken a top place in the ISA National Art competition showcasing pupils' art and celebrating creativity. This year, Elizabet Blazhyievska, a sixth-form student now studying Film at London Metropolitan University, won first place in the annual event in the 3D category, Key Stage 5.
Elizabet's piece, 'Shapeless Seascape,' conveys the fragility of sea landscapes and the effect of human impact on this unstable environment.
Congratulations to the staff and students of The Worthgate School. We wish Elizabet all the best in her studies too.
