A Jersey school has been nominated for a St John Ambulance Award in the charity's first national award ceremony.

Grainville was one of six schools in the British Isles to be short-listed for a community award.

The school was commended for the work it does promoting first aid in Jersey, with 35% of school staff trained in first aid.

The ceremony is at the Lancaster in London on Wednesday.

Work place award

Grainville was also short-listed for its work in raising money for a school defibrillator.

This came after death of the head of maths, Jim Holland, in April.

Grainville School is currently the 2011 National Schools Champions for First Aid.

Pupils regularly attend a first aid club after school and make visits to local primary schools to share their first aid knowledge.

RBC Wealth Management were also short-listed for an award in the work place, finance and insurance section of the awards.

The event is being hosted by the BBC's Sophie Raworth.
