On Wednesday 5th December, we celebrated the achievements of Attleborough Academy students with our Annual Presentation Evening. The guest speaker was Robert Jones, a former pupil who is now Chief Superintendent, police Commander for Westminster, Hammersmith, Fulham, Kensington and Chelsea. Mr Jones talked to the students about setting high goals and aspirations and how to achieve them.
A large part of the evening was celebrating the remarkable achievements of Year 11, who had produced the highest GCSE grades the Academy had ever achieved. Individual subject awards were presented as well as examination certificates. Trophies were also given to current students who have excelled in participation, respect, independence, determination and excellence - as well as progress. We had the pleasure of welcoming the international renowned opera singer Soeun Jeon, who gave a particularly impressive performance which delighted the audience.
Most of these awards were sponsored by local business and organisations and the Academy would like to extend our thanks for their support, without which we would not be able to organise such a successful and important event. It was a tremendously successful evening with parents and staff being able to celebrate the achievements of our wonderful academy students.
