Penny Hudson and Mr Thompson attended a FututeMe awards evening at Sunderlands Quayside Exchange. This was an opportunity to celebrate the hard work and achievements of young people, mentors and school staff who have been involved in the FutureMe Schools Programme during the 2018/19 academic year.

Penny has been recognised by the FutureMe team at Teesside University for passionately building the FutureMe offer within the Hurworth’s wider career programme and sharing her vast experience as an example of best practice with other FutureMe schools in the Teesside area.

Penny’s award of Outstanding Individual Contribution to Higher Education is a justification to all her hard work and dedication. This award recognises her as a member of staff who goes above and beyond to support higher education progression in their school.
