Lauren was nominated for the award by her parents as well as three members of staff, for developing a tenacious attitude to everything she does.
A medical condition can give her considerable pain and she has to complete physio directed exercises to help prevent and alleviate flare ups. Last year, she refused to give up during the Bronze D of E expeditions despite excruciating pain and was determined to complete the award. With the help of adjustments in school, Lauren has remained in lessons with very little time off. As she approaches her GCSEs, she continues to work hard to achieve the very best that she can in all her subjects.
Well done Lauren, we are all so proud of you.
