Students, alumni, parents, governors and staff gathered last night to celebrate the outstanding achievements of the last academic year with prizes awards for achievement, progress, endeavour and community spirit and leadership.
The evening began with an introduction from Mr Spendlow about the successes of the last year for the academy, as well as the amazing accomplishments of individual students. The audience was then treated to a musical interlude from the talented school orchestra and choir, led by Ms Thomas.
Prizes were then awarded to students in years 7-10, presented by special guest Ms Bidmead, Executive Principal and Mr White, Vice Principal. Students were awarded certificates and achievement badges.
Later on in the evening, following on a further musical interlude, year 11 shields and gift vouchers were presented for a wide variety of achievements.
The evening finished with an inspirational speech from Ms Bidmead, followed by a reading of the poignant poem, Oh, The Places You’ll Go!
Congratulations to all our award winners for the academic year 2018/19.
