Awards

Our students enjoy a wealth of opportunities to shine in Maths, Literacy, Music, Civics and Citizenship, Sports and the Arts. We encourage participation in a range of competitions and celebrate ‘doing your best’ as much as winning.

We’re very proud of the efforts of students and their achievements.
Some of our most recent awards and achievements are summarised below:

Maths Olympics, Horsham College, Overall Winners in 2014 and 2015
We began in the competition in 2011. Six local Primary Schools enter teams of 4 students making 40 teams in all.
In 2014, we entered three teams; a year 5 and two year 6 teams. To find the winner on the day, both our Year 6 teams had to play off against each other as they drew for first place. It was an excellent result for our students with our teams placing 1st and 2nd overall.
In 2015, we again entered three teams. Two of our teams performed exceptionally well with Geo Genius winning the overall competition.
