Students at LVS Oxford had their achievements recognised at a special ceremony at LVS Oxford on Friday 6th July. The school welcomed parents and families to share in honouring its students in a range of subject areas across different year groups.
Head Boy Morgan Callaghan and Head Girl Caitlin Ireland addressed those present, showing great courage to give speeches reflecting on their time at LVS Oxford. Then, in front of a hall full of families, students showed their growing confidence by going on stage to collect awards in subjects from computer science to history and horticulture, with the sixth form award going to Amelia Dean. This award was keenly contested as a number of sixth formers had worked incredibly hard to secure college places at a range of mainstream further education establishments including Westminster College and Abingdon and Witney College.
Ethan Hawkins leaves this summer to study a small animal care BTEC at Moreton Morrell College in Warwick and his grandfather John Herrington said: “Ethan has achieved a lot with LVS Oxford. He has become so much more relaxed and confident. The school has really brought him out of himself and developed his personality which has meant he has been able to do so much more.”
A successful year academically has seen 52 BTEC qualifications achieved in six subjects (Vocational, Sport, Health & Social Care, Retail Knowledge, Land Based Studies and Home Cooking) with GCSE courses and exams also being completed in the summer term. However it was a younger student, 13 year-old Lauren, who was overwhelmed at collected the Outstanding Achievement award.
Head of School Louisa Allison-Bergin said: “Here at LVS Oxford we know how important it is for students to take ownership of their learning and to receive specific feedback on what they have done well, along with areas to work on in the future. The Celebration of Achievement event gives students and their families the opportunity to pause and reflect on this year’s successes. The awards help students to build confidence which will allow them to progress even further next year.”
The event was preceded by welcome drinks and an English Tea Party to begin the celebrations as the academic year ended on a high with students looking forward to resuming their education at LVS Oxford in September.
