Last Thursday I was very privileged to attend the fist ever annual Telegraph and Argus Education Awards. As you may remember our Caretaker, Mr. Sykes, was nominated for the support staff member of the year award. Mr. Sykes was very honoured to be part of a group of three individuals, who had been shortlisted from 27 nominations. Mr. Sykes did not win the award but was highly recommended and was presented with a beautiful glass trophy on the night. I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of everyone at Horton Grange to say congratulations to Mr. Sykes and to thank him for his committment to the school and all his hard work. I am sure that you will agree that this recognition is justly deserved.
