Academy Scientists of the Year 2012

Congratulations to the Academy’s Scientists of the Year 2012, Emily Oakes (Year 7) and Reiss Bratt (Year 9) who received their awards at the Daresbury Science Award at the Daresbury Business Park on Wednesday 4th July.

Emily Oakes, pictured above with Dad (Mum was feeling too shy!!) is a remarkable young person who has already achieved so much in such a short space of time. Emily has a passion for science. She describes it as “different to any other subject”. As well as achieving in all subjects, Emily boasts an impressive range of interests outside school. She is the current British Tae Kwon Do Champion in her division, represents Vale Royal in cross country, takes on challenging mountain climbs across the country and is the proud recipient of a Blue Peter badge! Emily puts her achievements down to “determination and a love of learning”.

Reiss Bratt, pictured here with mum and dad, talks positively about how the academy has spotted his potential and rewards his efforts. Reiss’ Scientist of the Year Award is the latest in a long line of achievements which include half-Academy colours, Prefect, Sports Leader, Rugby team captain and school councillor. Reiss puts his success down to “positivity, determination, commitment and focus”.

Two more wonderful students the academy is proud of.

    Well done you two – yes science is such a fantastic field; there is still so much that is unknown, undiscovered, waiting for you to find, precipitate, capture; maybe even name!
    Go for it!
