Carlton le Willows Academy awarded top honour for ‘outstanding contribution’ to community


A ROYAL honour has been bestowed on Carlton le Willows Academy for its ‘outstanding’ work in the community.

The Lord-Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire Sir John Peace recently presented Carlton le Willows Sixth Form with his Award for Promoting Voluntary Service – in recognition of consistent high levels of charity involvement and community engagement among sixth formers at the school.

The Lord-Lieutenant presented the accolade – granted with Royal approval and launched in commemoration of the Queen’s 90th birthday – during the Academy’s Certificates Evening at the end of December – an annual event to recognise the exam achievements of Year 11 and 13 students.

Presenting the award Sir John Peace said: “As her Majesty’s representative in Nottinghamshire, I’m delighted to present the Lord Lieutenant’s Award for promoting voluntary service in recognition of your group’s outstanding contribution to the community and the great benefits you have brought to the lives of others.”

Speaking to the students he added: “You are the future. It is what you do that will determine our tomorrow. You will be the generation that leads the fourth industrial revolution. However, you don’t just require IQ, you also need EQ. How you feel about others, how you care for others is every bit as important as your academic and intellectual achievements.”

Following Sir John Peace’s speech, Callum Holmes from the National Citizen Service also presented Carlton le Willows with Silver Champion School status, in recognition of the high numbers of Year 11 students who took part in the four-week NCS charity project last summer.
