We are delighted to share the news that our Year 8 pupil, Thomas G, has been awarded a Scholarship for Agriculture at Abbotsholme School from September 2022. Thomas has achieved this accolade following an interview, assessment tests and spending a morning with Abbotsholme’s farm manager.
Thomas’s parents commented: “Whilst Thomas is very excited to have this opportunity, he has loved his time at Terra Nova and we are very grateful to all the staff that have looked after and nurtured him and we hope they can continue to encourage him to work hard until the end of the year so that he can start Year 9 with the best chance of ongoing success.”
Thomas is entirely deserving of this award, spending every Wednesday afternoon helping Mr Williams build the Meadow Farm and care for the animals that reside at Terra Nova. Thomas has always shown the utmost enthusiasm to learn and develop his agricultural skills daily. He is a brilliant asset to Terra Nova’s community, always volunteering to help around the school with anything he can. We are extremely proud of Thomas’s achievement and know he will go on to throw himself into the community at Abbotsholme and achieve brilliant things when he departs from Terra Nova at the end of Year 8.
