The Celebration of Achievement evening at the spectacular was a great success and provided a wonderful opportunity for 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 receive their , which are the pinnacle of the system in school.

Guests on the evening included the Deputy Mayor, Trustees and Governors and we were privileged to listen to the senior choir with a performance of ‘Hushabye Mountain’ from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, an extract from the school production ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’ and the Wind Band with ‘Sabre Dance’ by Khachaturian, all of which sounded outstanding in such a fantastic venue.

On the night, Mr Richard Sheriff – Executive Headteacher, CEO of the Red Kite Learning Trust and President of ASCL, was welcomed as the speaker and he spoke about resilience, failure and the importance of effort and striving hard to be the best version of ourselves that we can possibly be.

Jim McHugh, CEO of the Red Kite Learning Trust awarded the prizes. There were also incredibly inspiring speeches from Head Students, Sophie Morrison and Achele Agada. The evening closed with a festive number from the Y13 BTEC band and the full choir, who performed ‘Merry Christmas Everybody’ by Slade.

Two new prizes were awarded this year. ‘The Kevin McAleese Award for Determination in the Face of Adversity’, gifted to the school by former Headteacher, Mr McAleese, which was awarded to Cameron Osburn.

In addition, The Army Foundation College donated an award for Exemplary Leadership, in recognition of the close links we enjoy with them and this was awarded to former Headboy, George Kendall.
