Sixth Form student receives the “Making a Difference” Award

Latest

John Wadsworth, a Pudsey Grangefield School Sixth Form student, was one of three students nationally to receive the “Making a Difference” Award by the British Youth Council.

John works extensively with the BYC to voice his views on issues facing our young people today. These views are then shared with the Government and decision makers of Britain so that they can get a better understanding of what is important to our young people.

Alongside working with the BYC and studying for A levels, John has stacked up over 100 hours worth of volunteering work. John also works with the West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner to strengthen the relationship between young people and the Police.

John commented “It was a huge honour to be given this award; although I really felt like I received it as part of the amazing team of volunteers we have in the Leeds Youth Council. I was really surprised to be recognised nationally as we are always focussed on making a difference to local young people”.

Mark McKelvie, Principal at Pudsey Grangefield School added “It is an excellent achievement reflecting John’s years of hard work and commitment to ensuring the views of young people are heard and acted upon”.
