Around 130 pupils have been recognised for their achievements at the annual Sir John Leman High School Partnership Awards Ceremony.
The event, held at St Michael’s Church in Beccles last night, saw pupils from the high school, along with its 11 partnership schools, collecting their awards in front of a crowd of family and friends.
The awards ceremony is now in its sixth year and this year’s guest of honour was Stephen Drew, the headteacher from the Channel 4 documentary Educating Essex and Mr Drew’s School for Boys.
The pupils collecting awards ranged from Year 1 up to Year 13 and each pupil was presented with a medal and certificate highlighting their hard work, positive attitude and impeccable behaviour.
Jeremy Rowe, headteacher of the Sir John Leman High School, said: “This is undoubtedly one of the most important events of the year for our community.
“It is a wonderful celebration of the importance of schools working together, and of course a great way to say thank you to the huge number of fantastic young people that it is our privilege to work with.”
The partnership schools taking part in the ceremony were: Barnby and North Cove Primary, Brampton Primary, Crowfoot Primary, Ravensmere Infant, Reydon Primary, Ringsfield Primary, Southwold Primary, St Benet’s Catholic Primary, Gillingham St Michael’s First School, Albert Pye Primary and Worlingham Primary.
Guests were entertained by the Beccles Partnership Choir along with the Sir John Leman Jazz Band.
