Awards Evening 2018

Awards Evening 2018

Monday 17th December saw a glittering Awards Evening for Holyrood Academy students who were recognised for their high achievement, maximum effort and success during the academic year 2017-18. The event was attended by Holyrood’s Chair of Governors Mac Davison, and Headteacher Matthew Collins among many staff supporting the students' achievements and awarding the prizes. Mark Hunter, OBE was the night’s guest speaker. He is a World and Olympic rowing champion and opened the event with a fascinating and inspirational speech about his life and career.

This annual occasion was held at Holyrood with all prize-winners and their families made to feel very special and proud of their achievements. Guests were entertained throughout the evening by the exquisite Holyrood Chamber Choir, conducted by Mr Trevor Lloyd Jones.

Students were presented with prizes for exceptional performance at BTEC, GCSE and A Level as well as the Academy's traditional Major Cups which are awarded for a variety of contributions to the Academy, community and individual achievement. Please see the lists below for details.

Unusually this year there was a student not present to receive her award as she is currently in Columbia for a 12-month project, volunteering to help underprivileged children and families. Anisa Marsh, past Headgirl managed to connect up her phone and send a videolink to thank the Academy for her award - very Hollywood!

Mr Matthew Collins closed the evening by thanking parents, carers and staff for their continued support and hard work, saying, “It is evenings such as these that make us so proud of our students. Congratulations to all the deserving prize winners. We hope you enjoy the recognition you have received for the efforts you made last year. I am sure you will all continue to impress throughout your lives.”
