Adcote has had some wonderful news regarding one of our Year 13 prefects, with responsibility for sports. Today we have heard that Liverpool John Moores University has awarded her the Community Excellence Scholarship for the entire three years of her degree.

Claudia Nixson-Engel has been a student with Adcote since Year 7, and is currently taking A Levels in Geography, Physical Education and Psychology, In September she goes on to study a BSc in Sports Coaching with LJMU, finalising the tremendous effort she has placed towards her studies.

Devoting many evenings and weekends to Gymnastics, Claudia has both competed and supported Adcote Gymnasts to success in National competitions. Often volunteering her time to community swimming and dance. Her mother Lisa Nixson, a teacher and the gymnastics coach, states how proud she is of her daughter. Here at Adcote we are all very impressed in the leader Claudia has become and wish her all the best in the future.
