In December we had the pleasure of celebrating another year of outstanding achievement at the Attleborough Academy Annual Presentation Evening. 2017. During the evening we acknowledged a wide range of our students’ success: Year 11’s received their exam certificates and outstanding achievement across the curriculum was recognised with awards in each subject; current students of the academy in each year group were also acknowledged cups and shields with awards including those for performance, progress and attainment.
This year, along with many parents , members of the community, and all our teaching staff, we were excited to welcome Nic Jackman, a former student and Head Boy of Attleborough as our guest speaker. Since leaving the academy Nic has found success as an actor in film, theatre and television. During the evening Nic gave a motivational talk about his journey from being a quiet and timid student in Year 7, to currently acting in a feature film in Mexico. He spoke to the students about the importance of setting high aims for yourself and persevering through setbacks.
