2012 Presentation Evening
An evening of celebration at Oldham’s Queen Elizabeth Hall took place on Monday (19 November) to celebrate the achievements of students who moved up from The Radclyffe School last summer. The event was an opportunity to recognise the success of more than 300 young people.
Each student was presented with their certificate for their GCSE performance. In 2012 The Radclyffe School equalled its best ever results, with 51% of students achieving 5 or more qualifications at grades A* to C including English and Maths.
Ten students in each of the year groups 7 to 10 were acknowledged for their outstanding progress, in a variety of subject areas.
Seventeen students were awarded Full School Colours for their sporting achievement. This recognised their commitment to the school’s sports team throughout their career, their high standards of performance in a fair and sporting manner.
The Guest of Honour for the evening was Tim Mitchell, the Chief Executive of Positive Steps Oldham, who awarded prizes in each subject area, as well as ten special awards for students who had made particular exemplary contributions in the life of the school.
In his address Mr Mitchell said that the role of the school should be to encourage all students to reach for the top, and wondered how many of the students recognised would go on to become successful.
In his Headteacher’s Report, Mr Hardial Hayer said, “We believe in celebrating the achievements of all our students, be they academic, sporting, in music or drama.
“We are in the business of helping our students to achieve their dreams. We continue to focus on putting our students centre stage. Every decision the governors make is driven by the question how will this decision help our students.”
