Aubrey Allen Award

The Aubrey Allen Award recognises young people who take part in activities outside the school curriculum that help others or the local community.

The annual Aubrey Allen Award was started many years ago by a then member of the Rotary Club of Sherborne. He was unsurprisingly called Aubrey Allen and he wanted to encourage and reward young people of school age to take part in activities outside the school curriculum especially those helping others. Each year the Club seeks two nominations from The Gryhpon School, who are each awarded book tokens to the value of £40.

The 2019 winners are Dora Solloway and Holly Taylor, who together with Head of Sixth Form, Paul O’Donnell and Head of Year 13, Gareth Peirson attended the Club’s meeting on March 11th, to receive their chosen books.

Gareth Peirson introduced the two winners, who then both gave a short presentation to Club on their community projects and activities that led to their nominations and on why they chose the books that they did – read more about the winners’ projects here.
