Thursday 6th July 2017 was our first Achievement Awards Evening.
Over 500 people were in attendance to witness more than 80 awards being given to students from Years 7-11. The event was held at The Riverside Centre on Pride Park and we cannot speak highly enough of their staff for their assistance and support for the event.
Mike Wedderburn, the Sky Sports News presenter, was our guest speaker and personally presented every award posing for photographs with each student.
Feedback from the event has been incredibly positive and this will be an annual event in the Academy calendar. We would particularly like to extend our thanks to the parents for their support on the evening, but acknowledge that it is the students' drive, hard work and tenacity that set the foundation for the evening.
During the presentation citations were read out which captured the feelings of the teaching staff for each award winner. The citations are available for you to read by following the button below.
Many photographs of the evening are also available below.
