This year, staff from across the College have worked tirelessly to make sure that you have been able to access your education and as many student services as possible. It’s been a huge task and we’d like to say thank you to absolutely everyone who has made this academic year possible.

One way that we regularly do this is through You're Valued - our year-round rewards scheme that allows you to celebrate the work of all the staff who work within the College. It's your way of thanking people who consistently go above and beyond to make your life better at Royal Holloway and to embody the values that we and the College promote.

We know that this isn’t an exhaustive list of everyone who has gone above and beyond across the campus to make student life better, but here are a few of our You’re Valued awardees from the 2020/21 academic year:
