Year 11 Awards Evening

On Thursday 5th May we held our annual Year 11 Awards Evening. This was held in two separate events to accommodate the large number of students in such a large year group who received awards. The evening was again a thoroughly enjoyable occasion with dance, drama and musical pieces interspersing speeches and award ceremonies. 

Our award winners are  a credit to themselves, their families and our school and it was lovely to spend the evening with them and to recognise their achievements. Mrs Ruston, Head of Year, opened the evening by referring to students’ outstanding extra-curricular achievements alongside academic success. 

Mr Cooksey, Director of Year, closed the evening and  referred to a wonderful quote:  “Those at the top of the mountain didn’t fall there.”  This was the recurring theme of the evening – the hard work, commitment and determination that is required to be successful.  Award winners demonstrated these qualities in spades. Congratulations to every award winner.
