Norwich High School is one of five Finalists in the Muddy Stiletto’s Best Schools Awards

Posted on 7th June 2022

The school are Finalists in the ‘Best Experiential Learning’ category for their Formula 24 (F24) programme

Norwich High School for Girls are thrilled to be one of five Finalists in the Muddy Stiletto’s inaugural Best Schools Awards in the ‘Best Experiential Learning’ category for our Formula 24 (F24) programme.  

The Norwich High F24 team formed last year and have worked extremely hard to design and build their own electric race car in a dedicated space within the school grounds. They have since participated in the Greenpower racing series, which has taken them to top racing circuits throughout the UK and won the award for Best Newcomer at Lotus’ Hethel test track in 2021.

The reason this project was started at the school was to help address the issue of underrepresentation of women within the motor racing industry, and to provide Norwich High students with the opportunity to learn how to apply the skills and knowledge they’ve learnt in the classroom into the real world.

The F24 project was recently selected by the GDST as part of their Spotlight Series, which brings to life what it means to be a GDST Girl – happy and fearless, confident and prepared for the opportunities of the future. 

“We’ve been blown away by the quality of entries (over 400 of them!) across our 11 categories showcasing modern, well rounded, pastorally strong education and our expert panel have narrowed it down to five finalists per category.”

Editor-in-Chief, Muddy Stilettos, Hero Brown. 

Winners will be announced on Tuesday 14th June 2022.
