After a week of year group assemblies, heads of faculties were given the task of choosing one student from each year group to reward.

As well as this, a community award, a headteacher’s award and a Steve Welsh award, given to a student who has overcome adversity, were given out.

Year seven pupil Gracie Shepherd was rewarded for raising £600 and donating her hair to the Little Princess Trust.

Charlotte Connolly, in year 10, received an award for her attitude to school life which has seen her maintain a positive attitude and always work hard.
