School competition 2023

We hope you enjoyed being involved in the Step into the NHS competition 2022-23! Well done to all those that took part – we loved looking through all your entries. We received an impressive 747 entries from more than 920 pupils!

National winner

Well done to Alice and Charlotte from Clifton-Upon-Teme Primary School in the West Midlands on being chosen as our national winners!

The year 5 pupils created a fantastic stop-motion video telling the story of a day in the life of Eliza the paramedic and how she interacts with other staff, including porters, chefs and more. Watch it on YouTube.

The judges said: "Absolutely stunning stop motion video with fantastic voice overs! Incredible use of technology, a well thought out and creative idea. You were both very articulate and confident and asked some great questions. Well done on being the national winners!"

The winners will have their entry displayed in public, receive a £50 Amazon voucher and framed certificate each. They'll also receive an NHS goody bag and a prize for their class!
