Children from Bure Valley School have participated in two Norfolk Children’s University Graduation events this week; 10 children attended the graduation ceremony for High Achievers (165 hours or more passport hours) on the evening of the 16th June and 30 children graduated on the afternoon of the 18th June with achievements ranging from National Bronze Award (30 learning hours) to National Degree (400 learning hours). We were very pleased to share these celebrations with Year 7 pupils from Aylsham High School who were also graduating this week. Particular mention must go to ex-pupil Alexander Skinner, who continues his learning journey at Aylsham High School; Alex, who has amassed a massive 840 passport hours, is one of only two children to have achieved a Doctorate from the Children’s University. Many congratulations to Alex and to all pupils who celebrated graduation successes this week. It was lovely to see both events, which took place at the University of East Anglia, so well supported by parents and other family members.
We are delighted that the very first Forum Trust Norfolk Children’s University Learner of the Month is Stevie Ashby. Stevie is a great role-model for others and a fantastic ambassador for Bure Valley School so we are really pleased that her hard work has been recognised. Congratulations Stevie!
