SCHOOLCHILDREN from across the borough have been handed prestigious awards for their outstanding dedication in their studies.

In conjunction with this year’s Civic Honours ceremony, five hard-working pupils from Solihull’s schools were presented with awards sponsored by the Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) Group.

The Solihull Borough Education Awards are an initiative whereby GCSE students are rewarded for showing outstanding dedication in their studies.

Judges deemed the quality of students was of such a high standard that there was an extra award for Outstanding Progress.

The winners were handpicked from a long list of nominations by a selection panel of councillors, colleagues from JLR, a head teacher representative and Council officers.

Councillor Ken Meeson, cabinet member for children, education and skills, said: “This year’s selection of the borough’s JLR Education Award winners proved as difficult as ever.

“The judging panel were hugely impressed with the number of outstanding nominations and the winners can take great pride in being chosen from such a strong field.

“I want to thank all the Secondary Schools in Solihull for continuing to support the Education Awards so enthusiastically.”

The winners, who were presented with certificates and individual prizes, are:

Dylan Marriott – Outstanding Maths student: Alderbrook School

Ellie De’Eathe – Most Improved Maths student: Grace Academy

Pete Miller – Outstanding English student: Langley Secondary School

Mikey Akers – Most Improved English student: Alderbrook School

Ishani Sathi – Outstanding Progress student: Alderbrook School
