Myton School students were extremely lucky to be the first school invited to participate in the first ever Young High Sheriff Award which was presented last night by the current High Sheriff, Sophie Hilleary. This was a prestigious event attended by local dignitaries including the Mayor, student entrants and their families and members of Myton staff. As the first event of its kind, the hope is that this will roll out nationally to all schools.
The evening began with refreshments and a tour of the old Courts. All students received a Certificate presented by the High Sheriff for taking part and the winning entry was submitted by Aaron in Year 13, with runners up Toby in Year 11 and On Tai in Year 10.
Aaron, who is the first ever Young High Sheriff in the country, received his own High Sheriff robe to wear for the occasion and will spend a day working with the High Sheriff on a project of his choice, together with a cheque for £250.
Two additional awards were presented to our “unsung heros” at Myton. These were staff members who often go unnoticed for the contribution they make to school. We are happy to say that Mrs Burrows, Finance Director and Mrs Haines, Designated Safeguarding Lead, received these awards.
We are very proud of all the students who took part and also for the recognition of our staff. Thank you also to Miss Millington and Mrs Wyatt who helped to make this event possible.
