We are delighted to announce that Scarlett Perrin, a Year 13 student, is one of this year’s winners of the prestigious Diana Award. This is the 20th anniversary of this award and Scarlett is one of only 750 outstanding young people to have won this award from the UK and across the world.
All winners embody Princess Diana’s qualities of kindness, compassion and service. The Diana Award was set up in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales, and her belief that young people have the power to change the world for the better. It is committed to fostering, inspiring and developing positive change in the lives of young people through practical social action. Today The Diana Award has the support of both her sons, The Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
Scarlett is a role model for staff and students alike at her school, whether it is through her charity work for the Teenage Cancer Trust, in her roles as Head Girl and Student Governor, or as a part of student council. She is also an excellent advocate for action equality and helps to raise awareness of mental health concerns in the school community. Inspired by a close friend who became ill in Year ten, Scarlett has helped to organise two quiz nights for the Teenage Cancer Trust, and has helped to raise over £8000 for this worthy cause.
Well done, Scarlett. We are very proud of you!
