Name Axcis Andy’s new sidekick and win £100 in shopping vouchers for your school

We have exciting news here at Axcis Education Recruitment. Our loveable teddy bear mascot, Axcis Andy has made a new friend. We are asking for your help to give him a name.  We are providing you with two classroom worksheets to complete with your students. You can choose which one you use, or you can do both – it’s up to you!


Axcis Andy (left) and his new lion friend (right). Help us to name him and you could win £100 in shopping vouchers for your school.

Once you have completed your worksheet(s), simply scan (or take photos of them) and email them to us at You can send one per student, or you can choose the best entry from your class and just send us that one.

About the worksheets

Worksheet 1 is a story activity. All you need to do is use the missing words (listed under each paragraph) to complete the blanks. The last paragraph asks for a name, which isn’t listed. This is where your students can get creative. We’d love to hear your ideas! Download worksheet 1 here. 


Worksheet 2 is a drawing and colouring activity. We’ve provided a photograph of the lion toy. The task for your class is to simply draw him in the space provided, and come up with a name. Again, we are open to any and all suggestions. Download worksheet 2 here.

For confidentiality purposes, we have not asked for student names or details on the worksheets themselves. However, if you would like to submit class or individual student details when you send us your entries, you may of course do so at your discretion. Any details submitted may be used when announcing entries and winners.


Axcis reserves the right to use all images submitted for marketing and communication purposes. Selected entries will be displayed on our website and winners will be announced on our social media pages.


This competition will close on Friday 19th October 2018, with the winning name to be announced after the half term break. We regret that entries received from Axcis staff, families or affiliates will not be considered.
