PUPILS have been commended for working towards a scheme to help disadvantaged youngsters get into higher education.

Beaverwood School for Girls in Chislehurst received national recognition for their work at the Aimhigher Awards in London last Wednesday.

Beating competition from across the country, the school won the Aimhigher Partnership Practice award for working with the scheme to help increase the number of disadvantaged youngsters from the area who progress to higher education.

School representatives were presented with their award by the Rt Hon John Denham, Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills.

Pam Jennings, Key Stage 4 Leader from Beaverwood School for Girls, said: "We are obviously thrilled at receiving this prestigious award and hope to continue our successful partnership for many more years. We have now been involved with the Aspire AimHigher scheme for four years and during this time, Student Ambassadors from Greenwich University, led by Adam Brett, have worked with students every year, supporting them inside and outside the classroom.
