We recently rewarded top performing pupils at a school in Ilkeston, Derbyshire, by sponsoring a selection of their School Leavers Awards.

The awards for the children at Granby Junior School included prizes for the most caring pupil and the most well mannered and behaved pupils, as well as awards for exceptional performance in reading, spelling and music.

The leavers awards were given out during a special ceremony at Ebenezer Church Hall to mark the Year 6 children moving up to secondary school.

Kirsty Andrews, School Business Manager at Granby Junior School, says: “Our School Leavers Awards are a wonderful opportunity for all the teachers and staff to wish the children well before they move up to senior school and to reward those pupils who’ve gone the extra mile, whether that be with their manner around school or doing particularly well in class.

“We are very grateful to Taylor Wimpey for sponsoring a number of the awards and I’m sure the winning pupils will very much enjoy spending their prize money!”

Mariana Knight, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “As a local housebuilder, we are committed to supporting the communities in which we build, so we were delighted to sponsor the School Leavers Awards at Granby Junior School.

“I’d like to wish the children the very best of luck at their new schools!”
