“Kate works brilliantly in Spanish. She is always enthusiastic in lessons and keen to participate. She shows a genuine interest in the Spanish language and culture and works very hard to learn her vocabulary thoroughly, achieving full marks every week! She is a real role model to other students learning languages. Well done Kate!”

C Pollard, Teacher of French

“In Design and Technology, Kate is a good problem solver, who sticks with a task and completes all work to the best of her ability. She is also good at explaining concepts to her peers.”

M Kemp, Team Leader of Design and Technology

“Kate is the absolute model student; every day she consistently works hard asking questions and helping other students. She is always a ray of sunshine and brightens my day. Every lesson she hands out the books and is sat ready before the bell has even gone. She also helps me tidy up my room out of her own good will. She is the most polite and conscientious student I have ever come across and is well deserving of Student of the Month!”

R Ashford, Teacher of Maths

“Kate is a quiet, yet keen and engaged student. She always puts in 100% effort, which is then reflected in the quality of her work. She is a delight to teach.”

R Knibb, Teacher of English

“Kate has thrown herself into all aspects of the Performing Arts and Music at Newton Abbot College; she should be very proud of this. Kate is a confident on stage and always puts her all into every performance. Kate attends four Music and Performing Arts Clubs, including the College production, and is a wonderful contribution to each one.”

S Wilkinson, Teacher of Performing Arts and Dance

“Kate is a helpful, hardworking student who is always polite. She works well with others in class practicals and is always willing to help others.”
