Harrogate Grammar Schools Annual Celebration of Achievement 2014-15

On 16 December 2015, the Celebration of Achievement evening at the spectacular Royal Hall was a great success and provided a wonderful opportunity for Harrogate Grammar School students to demonstrate their many talents and achievements. On this very special night a whole range of achievements are recognised; academic, sporting, musical and for many, that most important ingredient of any success, effort. It was wonderful to see so many young people come up on stage to proudly receive their award that are the pinnacle of the awards system in school.

On the night Jamie Peacock MBE, recently retired after playing for both Bradford Bulls and Leeds Rhinos in the Superleague and captaining both Great Britain and England at International level, was welcomed as the guest speaker. He left our students and audience with some really powerful messages about going the extra mile and trying their best to be extraordinary. The evening closed with incredibly inspiring speeches by Head Boy, Jack Benson and Head Girl, Jasmine Cannon.

Harrogate Grammar School has had a very successful year, in terms of examination outcomes, GCSE results were outstanding and the school had record breaking A Level results with 66% of students gaining A*-B grades. These students have now left ready to take on the challenges of the world but also ready to seize the many opportunities that are out there for the taking.

However, it isn’t just about exam results at Harrogate Grammar School. On Tuesday, students hosted our most popular annual festive coffee morning to date with over 100 senior citizens of our community attending. The warmth, grace and understanding shown by Harrogate Grammar School students was wonderful and was certainly greatly appreciated by their guests.

Over the past weeks students have also been raising money for the new school charity of 2015-16, last year Harrogate Grammar School students raised over £15,000 for a local charity, Dementia Forward, none of this is able to happen without happen a great deal of effort on behalf of both staff and students.

Headteacher Richard Sheriff said:

It is such a privilege to be part of this very special evening in which we have an opportunity to reflect on all the fantastic achievements of our young people over the last year. Not all the students who deserve our praise can be here but this evening reflects their achievements too.
