Dignioras and Dignissimas awarded

There have been a number of awards made this week.  Congratulations to the following students who have received dignioras and dignissimas.

Imogen Miller and Madeleine Wight have received dignioras for History. Dr Filtness comments, “Imogen produced an outstanding piece of writing on ‘How secure was Henry VII on the throne?’, impressive both for its range and analytical depth and well above the standard expected for a second year pupil. Madeleine produced a thoughtful and thorough piece of writing about Nazi policy towards women which she put together under her own volition on a topic covered in class showing insight and comprehensive grasp of the subject.”

George Cartwright has received a dignissima for Computer Science after he created a technically skilful piece of programming for his A level project.  Mr Mapstone notes, “The main function was to demonstrate, in a shorter timescale, the evolutionary process. George applied the concepts of fitness, generations and mutations skilfully in code to create a visual simulation running on evolutionary inspired algorithms.”

Zoe Kyle-Henney and Ned Clarke have been awarded a dignissima and digniora respectively for Resistant Materials.  Mr Barker comments, “Zoe has been working with Romsey World of Water to create a feature for the front of their showrooms. Having discussed their needs, Zoe designed and produced and original project based on the traditional water wheel. Working mostly in oak and walnut, she also included glass, polymers and steel in the completed piece.  Ned has designed and produced a very high quality multi-functional table for his GCSE project; it is both visually striking and very useful.”
