Greenhead’s Grace Goswami a winner at the British Education Awards05 February 2018
Former Greenhead College student Grace Goswami was a winner at the British Education Awards 2018, in recognition of her outstanding academic results and other achievements.
Grace had been shortlisted in the 'A Level – England zone 1' category and was announced the winner at a prestigious awards ceremony and dinner at the Hilton Hotel in Manchester on 31 January 2018.
Grace was nominated for this award by Principal of the College, Simon Lett, after her outstanding success of three A* grades in her Psychology, History and Geography A-Levels. On top of these excellent results, Grace received the highest mark of the college in all three subject areas, including full marks in her History A-Level – an incredible achievement.
Grace’s dedication to Greenhead College was also a factor in her nomination. In addition to her studies, Grace committed four hours of her time each week to mentor four students in Psychology, as well as regularly helping out at open days. She often provided her teachers with her own learning resources, which she would use to aid her studies and help other students. An all-round enthusiastic and hard-working student, Grace is a well-deserved winner of this award.
Simon Lett, Principal at Greenhead College, commented:
“In many ways, words cannot really express what Grace has been like as a student, as she has created a special aura that teachers and friends want to be part of. We have never taught a student like Grace before: she has been truly exceptional.”
Commenting on her award win, Grace Goswami said:
“I’m very shocked to even be shortlisted for this award as I did not expect to be. I’d like to thank Liz, my Psychology teacher, for not only being a fantastic teacher but for being a person I could speak to about goings on both in and out of college.”
