Congratulations to two of our pupils, Lois and Ryan, for receiving prestigious Mayor’s Awards for Outstanding Academic Achievement and Community Contribution respectively.

The Mayor presented awards to 11 students from 5 local schools in recognition of their hard work and achievements.
Cllr Atiqul Hoque said: “I’m delighted to introduce this first ever Mayors recognition award, I’m hopeful that this is something our future Mayors will continue and make a yearly event. It was a pleasure to give awards to these hard-working young people and I have no doubt that they will do great things in the future.”
Lois, who receieved her award for Outstanding Academic Achievement, achieved outstanding academic success, exceeding her target grades in several subjects, to collect a set of results for which she should be very proud.
