Jessica powell student of the month june 2018

Congratulations to Year 8 student, Jessica Powell, who has recently been awarded Student of the Month for June 2018. Jessica is a real credit to both herself and the College; she is a talented all-rounder both inside and outside of the classroom environment. Most recently, she was seen lighting up the stage in the College's summer production of 'School of Rock'. A very worthy winner - well done, Jessica!

“Jessica is nothing less than a model tutee. She is kind, thoughtful and an excellent role model for others. Jessica has thrown herself into extracurricular life at Newton Abbot College, particularly within Performing Arts, and I loved seeing her perform in ‘School of Rock’. Academically, Jessica is doing brilliantly and she has achieved ‘outstanding’ after ‘outstanding’ on her progress reports this year, which is a real testament to her conscientious attitude to her studies.”

She is a real role model in History lessons – always willing to contribute an answer, scores highly in her Knowledge Organiser quizzes, makes sure her work is beautifully presented, supports other students and asks how she can do ‘even better’. She is a joy to have in the class.”

“Jessica is an exemplary student who I have been delighted to see grow in confidence in Mathematics over the year. I remember her expressing doubts to me about her ability in this subject in September, yet she has consistently produced very high scores in each of her assessments over the year. Her work is immaculately presented, she is incredibly attentive in class and I can always rely on Jessica to have an answer ready for any question I ask! She is an excellent role model for other students in the room and is a pleasure to have in the class.”
