Book of Excellence

Our weekly celebration of students’ excellence

The Book of Excellence is a striking celebration of the school’s ethos. Created from our students’ design concepts, at its heart the book is building a permanent, ever-growing record of our students’ achievement and excellence throughout the school.

Each week a student from each year group is chosen from staff nominations, their success recorded in the book for everyone to see. The pages build up an archive of distinction through the year.

Arman (Year 7)
Nominated by Miss Cooper

I would like to nominate Arman Islam for the Book of Excellence.

Arman always makes a positive contribution in lessons. He follows the five respects and is a pleasure to teach.

Well done Arman!

Baaz (Year 8)
Nominated by Mr Finc

Baaz displayed teamwork, sportsmanship and determination by being part of the Year 8 Boys’ Handball team and winning the Oldham Schools Championship.

Baaz has got a good attitude to learning and is making good or outstanding progress in the majority of his subjects. He has an excellent level of attendance and positive behaviour logs.

Well done Baaz!

Olivia (Year 9)
Nominated by Miss Goddard

I would like to nominate Olivia Crozier for the Book of Excellence. Olivia achieved 40/60 in her contemporary issues exam. This was the second highest mark in the school behind a Year 11 student.

An excellent achievement in Year 9.

Shobnam (Year 10)
Nominated by Ms Cavanagh & Mr Nash

Shopna’s behaviour is impeccable and she is making superb progress, testament to all the hard work she is consistently putting into her studies. Every week she asks for extra work. She recently completed the Year 11 PPE, achieving 92%, clearly a grade 9.

Miss Cavanagh writes, Shopna is excelling in most subjects, achieving level 5 in Science and Maths and good or outstanding progress in all other subjects.

She puts in so much effort and wants to achieve grade 8s and 9s at GCSE next year.

Tasmia (Year 11)
Nominated by Mrs M Jones

Since coming back in Year 11 Tasmia has really improved her attitude to learning. She is regularly attending catch up sessions which is helping her achieve over and above her target.

She is putting a lot more effort into all her homework which again is really paying off. She is now focussed not just on achieving her target grade but going beyond that.

Tasmia’s positive attitude to learning is making all the difference to her grade in textiles.

Well done!
