Prize-Giving 2018 - Celebrating Achievement

Our fourth annual prize-giving took place at Clothworkers’ Hall in the City of London yesterday. This prestigious event, which celebrates academic achievement, sees prizes given for top performance in each subject taught at the school, in each year group.

“It is important that students who consistently perform at the top of their subject are praised and celebrated,” said Principal Rebecca Iles-Smith. "Our prize-giving is just one of the ways that we motivate all our girls to continue their hard work on a daily basis, and to show how proud we are of their achievements." See a complete list of winners below and also our photo gallery of pictures from the event.

Community awards

Two students received special awards for their exceptional contribution to the HAB community. Ayse received the Karen Harrild Award for Community while Susan was awarded the Roger Hiskey Award for Leadership. The awards were created to celebrate Mrs Harrild and Mr Hiskey, long-standing members of the HAB community, who both retired from teaching in 2017. Mr Hiskey said: "I'm thrilled and delighted to come back here and see friends, and give an award for leadership to Susan."

This year we were also pleased to welcome back two former HAB sixth formers, Amal and Samaya, who took time away from their university studies to speak to our award-winners. They described coming to HAB as "the best decision we could have made". Now they are at university, and having to be more independent, they really appreciated how much the HAB teachers had helped them out, they said. We were also delighted that our Councillor for Southwark was able to attend the awards along with our Deputy Chair of Governors.

What students said...

"I really like coming here. It makes me feel great to have achieved so much and have it all recognised by the school." Basmala

"I’m very excited to be here and I feel very important." Madyson

"It’s a good opportunity because it enables HAB to celebrate the talent of the students because it encourages more students to do well." Korede

What parents said...

"It's great to come here and participate in [my daughter's] achievement, I’m very excited and proud of her."

"It's lovely and well organised and a really nice atmosphere."

"A very impressive and very elegant event."
