Hipperholme Grammar School’s Annual Speech & Awards Night

“The annual Senior School Speech and Awards Night is the most prestigious event in Hipperholme Grammar School’s calendar. It was an honour for the School to hold this evening once again at Bradford Cathedral yesterday evening. Around seventy prizes and even more certificates were awarded to pupils for their outstanding efforts and achievements in the academic year 2013 – 14. Former and current pupils, their proud parents, teachers and guests were present at the Cathedral to applaud and celebrate their success. A Level and GCSE certificates were also presented to last year’s examination candidates.

The evening began with a warm welcome from Residentiary Canon at the Cathedral, The Revd Canon Sam Corley. Guest of Honour at this year’s event was Mrs Margaret Denton, Honorary Life Member of the Independent Schools Association and recently retired Headteacher, who was asked to present the prizes to the students. Mrs Denton also spoke to the students and their families. She reflected on the School’s Motto, ‘Doctrina Fortior Armis’ (The Pen is Mightier than the Sword) and that this is as relevant in today’s turbulent world as it was when the School was endowed in 1648 during the English Civil Wars.

Form prizes and GCSE and A level subject prizes were awarded for merit and achievement to last year’s students from Year 7 through to Year 13. The R B Jones Prize for Chemistry was presented to Year 13 student James Brown. The Jack Wilkinson Prize for English was received by Year 13 Rebecca Firth and the Kath Atkinson Award for Sports Studies was awarded to Stephanie Teale. Both R B Jones and Jack Wilkinson are former Heads of Department at the School.

Rotary Club Prizes were kindly donated by Brighouse Rotary Club and presented by Chair of Governors Mr Chris Redfearn on behalf of the Rotary President Elect, Mr Tony Perryman, to three pupils: Jarred Bland, Sophie Godlington and Christy Ellis. These prizes were awarded for ‘Service above Self’, ‘Outstanding Personal Effort’ and ‘Achievement in the Face of Adversity’.

In addition, the Chairman’s Prize was awarded to last year’s Head Boy and Girl, Oliver Firth and Marianne Suddards. There was also a special Headmaster’s Prize awarded to Laura Godlington.

In addition to the awards, pupils, families and guests enjoyed a wide variety of performances and presentations given by pupils from different departments, including School Council, House and Sports reports, poetry recitals and music from the School Choir.

Headmaster Jack Williams congratulated all the students on an extremely busy and fulfilling School year, and this year’s Head Boy and Girl Kane Butler and Abigail Phillips reflected on their time at Hipperholme Grammar School.

The evening concluded with everyone singing the School Song Carmen Hipperholmiense in Latin, which is sung by the whole School every Monday morning in Assembly!

Hipperholme Grammar School would like to thank Brighouse Rotary Club for donating prizes as well as the families of Jack Wilkinson and Kath Atkinson and the Trustees of R. B. Jones.
