The annual celebration evening was held on Tuesday 20th July. The event was attended by over 300 parents, staff and governors all there to support the students who had been nominated for a prize this year.

Prizes were awarded in each subject to the highest achieving student in the year group and the student making the greatest effort over the past academic year.

There were also prizes for those students who had made the greatest contribution to their tutor group, had received over 175 commendations over the year and to 35 students who had 100% attendance.

The Harry Watts memorial prize for humanity was awarded to Paige Nightingale, who was nominated for her work with St John Ambulance and for taking part in sponsored runs for charity.

Headteacher, Anne Hutchinson, said: “Tonight is about celebrating the hard work of all the students."

"They are fantastic role models for the school because when we ask students to ‘try their best’ they have shown just what that really means - going that extra mile, showing that greater commitment and making that difference."

"They all thoroughly deserve their awards and are a credit to themselves, their parents and to this school. I want to thank them for their contribution over the last year,” she added.

Thanks were also given to the Glebelands Trust who donated the prizes and to the staff, governors and the parents for encouraging their children to be the very best they can be.

The evening came to a close with a speech from Jim McMahon, who retired from Glebelands after 21 years teaching at the school.
