High Sheriff's Award

High Sheriff’s Award - November 2021

We were delighted to be nominated and to receive a High Sheriff’s Award for our work as a school during the Covid-19 pandemic. This prestigious award has been presented to individuals and groups across Oxfordshire in recognition of efforts to support local communities. This included our creative curriculum, home learning support, food parcel deliveries and our focus on the emotional health and physical wellbeing of our pupils. We have been recognised and celebrated as Oxfordshire Covid-19 Heroes!

Mrs Gardiner and Lily Moss were honoured to represent Fitzwaryn at the Awards Ceremony held at County Hall on 4th November. We were accompanied by Tom Arnold, an ex-governor of the school, who kindly nominated us. Lily did a brilliant job of accepting the award from the High Sheriff of Oxfordshire, Imam Monawar Hussain, on behalf of the school and we had a lovely morning meeting some of the other recipients. It was fantastic to hear about some of the amazing work that has been completed by people across the county during the pandemic; we were the only school to be selected!

After the ceremony, Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Oxfordshire, Marjorie Glasgow, also spoke to Lily about Fitzwaryn. Both she and the High Sheriff have been invited to visit us and to see for themselves what we do; we look forward to welcoming them soon!
