What is ‘Excellence’?

Excellence is doing something to the best of your ability

– Henry (Year 6 Pupil)


What is it that you can do to show excellence?

Who decides to be excellent?

How can we be excellent?


We watched this motivational video to really show what it means to be excellent and ways in which we can strive for excellence. Mr Curl asked us what we thought about the video and what was the message we got from it?

  • “Sometimes you make mistakes but they will help you  get better at something – it helps you understand and progress!”
  • “Every second is a gift”
  • “Leave no stone unturned”
  • Mrs Alderson explained that she is competing in the British championships and that she could relate to the feeling in the video
  • “Better today than I was yesterday”
  • “That excellence is not always about winning, but about bettering yourself and always doing the best you can each day”
  • “Trying your best rather than being the best”

To finish our assembly Mr Curl said a prayer:

“Dear Lord we thank you for examples of ways we can be excellent and we ask that you can help to put the feeling into our hearts. Going forward we will do better and be better than we did the day before. Not necessarily winning, but always striving for excellence in all that we do. Amen”
