Education Awards finalists and a worthy winner for The Deepings School 


Along with colleagues and Governors I was delighted to attend the Lincolnshire Free Press Education Awards, held at the South Holland Centre, Spalding.  The Deepings School excelled in reaching the final in a total of five award categories and my congratulations to all the finalists; it was inspirational to hear their achievements cited as the commendations were read out. 


Inspirational Teacher of the Year – Mrs Rachel Capper, History Teacher and Able, Gifted and Talented Co-ordinator

Student of the Year – former 13 student Nathan Cook

Most Improved Student of the Year – Year 12 student Tom Jibb

Outstanding Sporting Achievement – Year 10 student Jake Jarman

Contribution to the Community – The Deepings School, nominated specifically for its work with the Deepings Foodbank


Throughout the evening the high standard of entries from schools across south Lincolnshire was emphasised and it really was an achievement to have featured in the ‘final three’ in so many of the categories.  The whole team representing the school last night were thrilled when talented gymnast Jake Jarman won the prestigious Sporting Achievement Award, congratulations to Jake on this well-deserved success.
