Castle Manor Academy celebrated the success of last year’s year 11 and 13 students at a celebratory evening with the Dean of St Edmundsbury, the Very Revd Dr Frances Ward.

The annual Celebration of Achievement Evening last Thursday (November 29) began with an opportunity for those that have moved on to meet up with one another.

Head boy Ben Carlyon and head girl Harriet Potter welcomed guests to the event and introduced Dr Ward to guests. Dr Ward spoke about the importance of education and its power to affect change in each and every persons life.

Before the event she had shared with staff and students how impressed she was with the pride that students showed in their achievements and the buzz that preceded the event.

Awards were given for students that showed exceptional performance or effort in particular subjects, before the whole year group were jointly congratulated for completing their studies.

Once year 11 and 13 had been rewarded individually the ceremony moved on to the coveted annual prizes.

Here trophies are awarded for students that stand out from the crowd in a particular area of academy life.

Most of these awards are sponsored by significant people from the history of the academy.

In total there are 12 awards ranging from the Hepworth Maths Award, awarded to Lydia Marsh this year, to the brand new Performing Arts Award, awarded to Cian Harris.

The pinnacle of these awards is the Principal’s Award for service to the Academy, which is awarded to the student that makes the biggest mark on the life of the academy.

This year the Principal’s Award was given to Victoria Abery, who also won awards in Science and Art, for her strength and determination to succeed following a difficult time during her education.

Following a gymnastics accident during her studies, and subsequent five month stay in hospital, she went on to achieve a fantastic set of GCSE results to show that with determination any barrier can be overcome.

The Celebration of Achievement Evening is an important event in the calendar at Castle Manor Academy, which prides itself on the exceptional achievements of its students.

If you’d like to organise a tour of the academy and see the trophies for yourself please contact the school.
