Euan Lodge, who graduated from Stockton Sixth Form last summer, has been nominated for a British Education Award (BEA). These Awards promote excellence in British education and celebrate individuals who have excelled within the UK education system.
Euan, a former Grangefield Academy pupil has been nominated for the UK Award in the England Zone 1 A Level category. In his nomination he was cited to embody all that anyone in further education would wish to see in a student.
He left the college after achieving AAAB in History, Mathematics, Physics and English Literature and has gone on to read Physics at the University of Liverpool.
A proud advocate of the college, he regularly spoke at assemblies and engaged with prospective students. He took every opportunity to augment his education by attending field trips and extra seminars. Euan received the Schools Physicist of the Year award by The Ogden Trust and was selected from over 1200 applicants to attend the prestigious Sutton Trust University of Bristol Summer School.
Euan said of the award: “I’m overjoyed to be nominated for the British Education Awards. It was a great surprise but a welcome one. I’m incredibly grateful to all staff from college for their help me throughout my time at Stockton Sixth Form and for the nomination.”
Joanna Bailey Principal of Stockton Sixth Form said: “We are delighted that Euan has received this well-deserved nomination. During his time at Stockton Sixth Form he exhibited an exemplary approach to his studies, balancing a fierce commitment to his own work alongside a supportive role to his fellow students who benefitted enormously from his insight and patience in explaining complex matters.
