Birmingham’s Little Success Stories – July

Birmingham’s Little Success Stories – July

A year 6 pupil at Grove Vale Primary School has been awarded the Maclaren Scholarship to Summer Fields School in Oxford and has also accepted an offer to Eton College at the age of just 11. His aspiring aim is to become Prime Minister one day due to his passion for politics. We hope that his hard work pays off!

Birmingham is soon to receive a large sum of £897,000 in order to encourage the best possible future for special educational needs students. The cash will be split between Birmingham City Council, who will be utilising the money to improve special needs schools, and charities who work with vulnerable children allowing them to “dream big”.

Broadmeadow Junior School in Kings Norton have been celebrating the Queen’s 90th birthday with students creating the Union Jack flag in a photo, wearing either white; red or blue.

Congratulations to Lindens Primary School head teacher Simon Griffiths who has been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s birthday honours list. After being the head teacher at Lindens Primary for more than ten years says he is “elated”. Staff of the Birmingham primary school decorated the school with balloons as a surprise celebration for his reward.

Congratulations to students at the Arthur Terry School who formed a team of over 100 students and ran in the Great Midlands Fun Run. The students took part in the run to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust in honour of Steven Sutton, who sadly lost his battle with cancer in 2014. Other students are raising money for their trip to South Africa in July, where they will be helping to improve under-privileged primary. Birminghamschools.
