Two star pupils at a Hucknall primary school have been presented with a special award for demonstrating the school’s values.

Curtis Flint and Mary Wade, both aged 11 and leaving Year 6 at Edgewood Primary School, received the prize at an assembly on Wednesday July 22.

The Ben Marshall Award is named after the Hucknall businessman and former Edgewood pupil.

Deputy Head teacher Michael Tidd said: “Curtis and Mary were awarded with the Ben Marshall award for demonstrating the school’s values of ambition, determination, inquiry, morality, resilience and reflection.

“They were selected by staff and pupils as representing the very best of the school, and are the inaugural recipients of what will become an annual award in the name of local businessman, and former Edgewood pupil, Ben Marshall.

“Ben came into school to present the awards to the worthy recipients in the final assembly on the last day of the academic year.”

Mr Marshall is the co-owner of the H2o Bar on Hucknall High Street and a co-director of Eastwood Community Football Club.
