Award-winning local students

Local students at Guthlaxton College in Wigston, Leicestershire have beaten off strong competition to win top prizes. Amar Aggoun won the Award for Excellent Improvement at Key Stage 5 and Sarah Weston won the Award for Excellent Improvement at Key Stage 4. Both awards were sponsored by Hays Education, the leading recruiting expert. 

Mike Sherwin, Senior Manager at Hays Education, says: “Guthlaxton College has worked hard to be one of the most improved upper school in Leicestershire, which is why it is important to promote, recognise and reward the achievements of students within the College. We’ve been working in partnership with Guthlaxton for two years now, helping them to recruit permanent teaching and support staff. It’s good to see that the school has had such a successful year and the students have achieved so much.”
