Do you know an exceptional secondary student who is a great role model and all round good ambassador for your school? Then why not nominate them for the Secondary School Pupil of the Year Award, sponsored by Livesey Spottiswood.

This award will recognise a pupil who has made an outstanding contribution, academic or otherwise. We want to hear about pupils who exert a positive influence on other students, is approachable by staff and pupils alike and is happy to get involved in activities for the school.

Last year’s winner was Harrison Ledsham from Haydock High School, who was diagnosed with bone cancer yet succeeded in showing incredible strength and courage during his ordeal and amazed teachers with his determination and positive attitude. Sadly, the brave youngster passed away earlier this year.
