The Mount School has been shortlisted for not just one, but two prestigious awards at the Independent School Awards!
The Mount’s motto, ‘Fidelis in parvo’ means ‘faithfulness in small things’, echoing our values as a small, family-led school with great ambitions for our pupils. This year, the school launched an exhibition of notable Old Scholars which examines the lives of former Mount pupils including Dame Judi Dench. The exhibition has a clear common thread uniting these amazing women is their faithfulness in small things leading to great and many things.
Another woman we’re sure will find herself a place in the exhibition is Ruby in College II. We are extremely proud of Ruby who has been shortlisted from 100s of pupils for the ‘Rising Star of the Year’ award. The nomination recognised Ruby’s achievements in Rugby, her passion for representing women in the sport, her sportsmanship at school and her dedication to being a Sports Scholar at The Mount.
On hearing the news, she had been shortlisted Ruby commented, “This is lovely and so surprising to get this far! I started rugby at age 13 and it has provided me with a sense of enjoyment but also confidence. It is empowering to play against so many strong women.”
David Griffiths, Principal comments “Mount pupils know that being a small school is not a hindrance; if anything, it encourages pupils to look beyond limitations and see, instead, potential in the world around them.
Mount pupils constantly enjoy opportunities to test themselves beyond the school gates, such as the Bath Model United Nations for public speaking, regional competitions in all academic fields, including the UK Maths Trust, and performing arts contests like the Northern Ballet Dance Competition.”
The final nominations for the Independent School Awards will be announced in September. Stay tuned for updates. . .
