Students proudly receive their awards.
Tuesday evening, June 21st 2016, saw 27 Varndean School students from Years 9, 10 and 11 receive their Young Citizens Award from Peter Field, Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex. The Rotary Club event took place at the Metropole Hotel in Brighton and students attended with their parents and staff members. Along with Varndean School were students from Longhill, PACA, Hove Park and Blatchington Mill.
Students from Varndean School received Gold and Silver awards for their contributions to many aspects of school life and in the wider community. From running the basketball club, putting on major fundraising events for charity to helping with Brightonshed hosted at Varndean School.
Alison Browning and William Deighan are extremely proud of all Varndean students and a special mention must go to Rosie Jones and Joe Taylor who spoke extremely well about their volunteering.
One final special mention must also be made here, as it was by the Lord Lieutenant on the awards evening, of the tireless energy and devotion of Alison Browning to so many aspects of school and extra-curricular life for Varndean students. Thank you Ms Browning!

For #WomensHistoryMonth, our Year 8s have been having lessons on notable women in history and the story of how women got the vote in England. Equality, kindness and standing up for what's right continues to play a large part of Varndean's ethos. https://t.co/dMsV2Hyy6F
