    Governors, Parents, Pupils and Guests

    W elcome to this year’s Prize Giving and a particularly warm welcome to our Guest of Honour, Mr William Ashworth.

    This is the second year we have celebrated Prize Giving

    as a whole Senior School at this point in the year and in

    a marquee at our Barton Road Sports Ground. I would

    like to pass on my thanks to K Smith, P Kirk, S Green,

    Mrs Mallard and their Facilities, ICT, Grounds and

    Catering teams for making this celebration of the

    school year possible.

    This afternoon is an opportunity to reflect on the

    extraordinary achievements of this academic year and

    to celebrate all that makes the Dixie Grammar School a

    unique place in which to learn and grow.

    The Dixie Grammar School ~ Nursery Junior Senior

    William Ashworth M.A. studied social and political

    sciences at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. He has

    worked for many years as both a solicitor and a

    barrister and has served as a District Judge since 2011.

    His legal experience is highly varied, ranging from

    presiding over care proceedings and adoptions in

    family courts to youth offending, prison discipline,

    extradition cases and jury trials in the Crown Court.

    He is a father of three and, beyond his legal work, he is

    a fanatical hockey player having been a Cambridge blue

    - and an optimistic cook.

    Mr William Ashworth
