Year 7 students at Spilby’s King Edward VI Academy, part of the David Ross Education Trust, were recognised for their outstanding achievements during a recent ‘Personal Best Awards Evening’.

Awards were presented to students throughout the course of the event, recognising their achievements and progress during their first term at the academy.

Amongst the students celebrating were Tamzin Alcock and Riley Donkin Holsworth, who each received the Year 7 Attainment Award. Xander Summers, Ruby Robins, Charlie O’Callaghan and Finola Ovington-Stephens were also delighted to accept the Year 7 Progress Awards.

Jo-Myhill Johnson, Principal at King Edward VI Academy, said: “We feel that it is important to recognise the achievements our Year 7 students, who have been at the academy for less than a term, but have already made an enormous impact on our school community.

“I am extremely proud to have these talented students at our academy and I have no doubt that they will continue to work extremely hard to achieve the very best they can during their time at our school.”

Earlier this term, King Edward VI Academy was also celebrating as Ofsted judged that the school continues to be good and praised the school for the accelerated improvements made since the last inspection in 2014.

“We set high standards to create rich learning environments where all young people can achieve and excel, and it is incredibly rewarding to see our students celebrate these fantastic achievements as a result of their hard work and dedication.”
