Tudor Grange Academy Solihull’s sixth form jazz band (with guests!) were delighted to be asked to perform at the annual World Class Schools Awards Ceremony, hosted by Cambridge University at Lady Mitchell Hall. The Awards Ceremony celebrated accrediting schools, as well as individual students from World Class schools UK wide in recognition of their outstanding achievements in 2019.
WCSQM awards a quality mark to non-selective state schools that offer the best education to young people in the UK. Tudor Grange Academy Solihull achieved World Class Schools status in 2015 and reaccredited in 2018. Unlike other national assessment bodies, WCSQM assess the student and not the school, against a framework of skills and competencies young people need to flourish in an emerging global economy.
The Awards Ceremony saw World Class school leaders, staff, students and their parents from across the country come together to enjoy an evening of prize giving, accompanied by performances from talented World Class students and a keynote talk from the event’s host, Dr Phil Knox. As well as awarding this year’s accrediting schools, there were awards across a number of categories recognising students’ World Class achievements in 2019, including the essay writing competition and individual student achievement award.
