A diligent, driven and charming young lady


Isobel Is an outstanding, high achieving representative of the Academy: she is a diligent, driven and charming young lady. Several staff have continually nominated her for Star of the Week - demonstrating that she continually, and meticulously, applies herself to her studies. I have no doubt that Isobel will achieve outstanding results in all her GCSEs.

Fantastic pupil who attends P7 (4-5pm) every week – got a 9 on her last PPE in history and is simply a pleasure to teach!

Isobel embodies everything that Winifred Holtby Academy wants from our pupils – she is industrious, conscientious, flexible and receptive to feedback. In English she has made outstanding progress this year and is now regularly achieving grade 9s because of her work ethic and determination. In spite of the obligatory school pressures, she always manages to have a smile on her face and tackles every task and piece of work with enthusiasm and aplomb. - Miss Kermeen
