Rebecca Newell from Ilkey Grammar School who has been awarded the Brathay Trust Outstanding Leadership Award

Our Assistant Head of Community Provision, Julie Whiting, had the great pleasure of sponsoring and presenting Ilkey Grammar School's Rebecca Newell with our inaugural 'Brathay Trust Outstanding Leadership Award'.

Rebecca who has just started at King’s College Cambridge, where she is studying Human, Social and Political Science, is the school’s first head girl. The school praised Rebecca as someone who combined great intelligence with kindness, thoughtfulness, a deep sense of responsibility and excellent leadership qualities.

We have worked with the school for a number of years running a three day residential for their Year 9, a cohort of around 240 students. We also run a residential leadership programme for their Year 12 pupils.
