South Wilts awarded Prestigious Challenge Award

Challenge Award

On December 9th South Wilts was awarded the prestigious Challenge Award. This national award is presented by NACE (National Association for Able Children in Education) and recognises schools that show outstanding provision for gifted, talented and more able students.

The application process combined a rigorous self assessment followed by a one day assessment in which two assessors visited lessons, talked to students, staff, parents and a governor and looked at examples of students' work.

The assessors were highly complementary about the students, staff and wider community work of the school. They were particularly impressed by the ethos of support and care within the school, the support that older students provide to the younger years in the form of academic mentoring and in their positions of responsibility, as well as the high expectations of students and staff. They felt that the quality of learning was outstanding and that the range and depth of enrichment opportunities was exemplary.

I would like to thank all the parents and students involved in the day. This award is an opportunity to celebrate the hard work and achievements of parents, staff and students and to build on our outstanding provision. (Mrs Harris)
