Shaw Education Trust Exceptional Achievement Award Ceremony

On Monday 2nd October 2017 three of our Year 9 students attended the Inaugural Shaw Education Trust Exceptional Achievement Award Ceremony, which celebrates the success of year 9 students, across all academies in the Trust, who have performed above and beyond expectations.

The event provided an opportunity for students from across the entire Trust to come together to celebrate their successes and think about their future. The Shaw Education Trust (SET) has developed very quickly and is now a well known and respected multi academy trust. Geographically, it's northern most school is Castlebrook Academy in Bury and it's southern most is Great Barr in Birmingham. There are another three special schools in the Trust and two other mainstream schools -Wolstanton and Madely. Seabridge Primary has also recently joined the SET. Our students had the opportunity of seeing other Year 9s from different schools and hearing about their achievements. The setting for this celebration was Keele Hall, Keele University - driving into these beautiful surroundings, Leonie, Josh and Aarman could see that if they worked really hard, they too could have the opportunity to experience student life.

The awards were presented by Jo Morgan, the Chief Executive Officer of the SET, she said: 'We believe that every young person can achieve great things; our academies provide the opportunity for all to excel. We want to celebrate our young peoples’ success and promote aspiration through high achievement.'

Miss Mitchell and Mrs Probyn, who accompanied our scholars, were extremely proud of how well they coped with such a high profile event - a few tears of pride were shed as they went on stage to collect their certificates.
