World Class School Award - Again at Cranford Community College

World Class School Award  Dec 2016

Following on from the successful achievement of the World Class School Quality Mark by Cranford Community College in November 2015, two of Cranford’s students Jessica Atouguia and Mustafa Ahmed along with their teacher Philip Dobison, attended this year’s assessment day at the Wren Academy in October 2016. The two students were shadowing the assessment process and both successfully achieved Qualified Student Assessor status. During the assessment day, the two students had 3 students each that they had to assess carefully to ensure that those students met the standards required to achieve the World Class School Quality Mark. The Cranford students were also being assessed on their judgements and successfully completed their own assessment stage with flying colours.

Jessica Atouguia said: “Taking part in the WCSQM as an assessor was extremely exciting. I didn’t know that so many schools could work together to achieve World Class School status; it was a great sight to see. When we first arrived at Wren Academy I was nervous, because I had never taken part in something this big. I felt like there would be a lot of pressure on me. We all got along so well and it was great to see the teamwork between the schools being assessed and the schools doing the assessing. I was truly honoured to be able to witness the creativity, hard work and effort that the schools put in to each of their projects. In the end it all paid off, because we were awarded the WCSQM Assessor Award. I can’t wait to be a part of WCSQM next year – it’s such an amazing experience”.

The other qualified student assessor Mustafa Ahmed said of the day: “Honestly I was surprised by the rigorous amount of preparation, expertise and skill needed to even qualify to take part in the World Class Assessment let alone gaining the world class status. The students I was assessing all truly displayed amazing skills and have each truly represented their respected schools".
