The Trustees of St. John’s Hospital Educational Foundation hosted their Annual Blue Boy Awards by kind permission of the Bishop of Crediton, Jackie Searle, at the Bishops Palace on the evening of Tuesday 5th December. The Trustees place on record their congratulations to the five recipients of the Blue Boy Awards for 2023. The students were a credit to their tutors, parents and above all themselves. The awards were not for academic achievement but for the extracurricular contribution the students had made in the respective schools including epic charitable fundraising events and giving both emotional and practical support to their peers. The Trustees continue to recognise the high standards of their Partner Schools and in particular the Staff who work tirelessly to facilitate such well-rounded students!

Students receiving an award were:

  • Jack Balchin – St. Peter’s High School
  • Cameron Chown – St. Luke’s High School
  • Isabelle Bill – Exeter School
  • Lilly Mazer – The Maynard School
  • Rosie Holgate – Exeter College

Each student was supported by their Headteacher or a member of their Senior Leadership Team in their respective schools giving a citation of their students’ contribution to their particular school communities. The five recipients were exceptional role models and we wish them every success in their chosen careers.
