FOUR hard-working pupils from Solihull were presented with special awards in conjunction with this year’s civic honours ceremony.
The Solihull Borough Education Awards, sponsored by the Jaguar Land Rover Group (JLR), were held on Wednesday (October 21) in the council chamber of the civic suite.
The Education Awards are an initiative whereby GCSE students are rewarded for showing real dedication in their studies.
Winners Louie Boot, Owen Wilton, Miranda Yates and Klaudia Dabrowska were handpicked from a long list of nominations by a selection panel consisting of councillors, JLR colleagues and a headteacher.
The winners received a £50 gift token and awards for winning Outstanding Maths Student, Most Improved Maths Student, Outstanding English Student and Most Improved English Student respectively.
Coun Joe Tildesley, who is responsible for education, skills and culture, said he wanted to thank JLR for agreeing to sponsor the accolades this year and for everything they did for individual schools in the borough.
He added: “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 and we look forward to welcoming the winners to the prize giving event on the October 21.”
