World Class Schools Award Ceremony
On 7 December 2017, Churchill College, Cambridge University hosted the annual WCSQM Award Ceremony. 180 staff and students from 32 World Class schools throughout the UK came together to celebrate their students’ World Class achievements in 2017.
WCSQM is all about the students. The assessment is of the students not the school, and students who have already achieved World Class status can train as assessors for the Mark. This year, 18 students from current World Class schools received their World Class Assessor Qualification at the Award Ceremony, including Year 10 student, Jasmine, from Sir Jonathan North Community College, Leicester.
‘It has been fascinating training up students as assessors. It has helped them develop highly refined skills of analysis and evaluation, which will be invaluable in the world beyond school,’ Roz Webb, Qualified Assessor.
Congratulations also go to Alison Merrills, Principal at Sir Jonathan North Community College, who has also been accredited as an assessor.
WCSQM would like to extend a special note of thanks to Churchill College, Cambridge, for hosting the event, and to Dr. Jerry Toner for officiating. We would also like to thank all our World Class schools. We are delighted to have the opportunity to acknowledge and applaud everything that makes your school and students World Class.
Miranda Perry, Director World Class Schools
