Winners! Pride of the Cotswolds ‘School of the Year’ Award 2018

Wooohooooo! Our school is BUZZING! The children and staff are all over the moon to be School of the YEAR 2018! I cannot thank you all enough for your support and for the nominations. The awards evening was incredibly humbling and I could not have been more proud to be your Headteacher and accept the award on behalf of us all- TEAM AK! Moments like this are precious and we should all treasure them. I love this school, it is incredibly unique. Our children, staff, parents and governors give everything to ensure that we all shine super brightly and I hope you all feel so proud to be part of this incredible school family.

My face hurts from smiling and my heart is racing with excitement and bursting with pride as I type this! When I told the children in assembly this morning the room erupted with cheers and applause as every one was so proud to be part of this wonderful team.

THANK YOU! This is the best school and I am so very lucky to be your Headteacher.

It was the acceptance speech by Ashton Keynes head Samantha Saville that was the individual highlight. It should have been recorded and played to all aspiring heads: “Shine bright and reach for the stars” is the school motto, and at Samantha’s school it is clear there is the opportunity for all pupils to do that.

There is no limit on what children can achieve at Ashton Keynes they are clearly given the hope and confidence to reach their personal limits and perhaps move beyond.  Wilts & Glos Standard
