On Thursday, 20th July, we welcomed families to our annual 'Best in Everyone' Awards Celebration evening at Northampton Academy.
This annual celebration is dedicated to recognising the tremendous efforts of our students and staff, who consistently show our core values of Respect, Determination, Ambition, Tolerance and Integrity. The awards celebrate dedication, hard work, and character development, both inside and outside the classroom.
This year we welcomed our guest speaker, Ethan Waller, a local professional Saint's rugby player who embodies our core values. Ethan entertained students, parents/carers and staff with his inspirational speech about how his life changed direction, his choices, and how he has developed his successful career as a top rugby player.
The audience enjoyed performances from our recent Matilda Jr. musical from Kelsey and Emily and some other music from our talented musicians: Nikolas, Meshack and James, and singer Ellie-May.
We hope everyone enjoyed the evening as much as we did. Parents and carers should be immensely proud of the winners for being recognised for their achievements.
Principal Chris Clyne said: "Each year, the BiE awards hold a special place in my heart. What makes this event so special is not only celebrating our students' academic achievements but also celebrating their character development. The evening itself was nothing short of brilliant; the musical prowess displayed by our talented musicians left everyone smiling. Moreover, our guest speaker, Ethan Waller, captivated the audience with his inspiring journey, illustrating how unwavering determination and ambition guided him towards success in his career. A fitting way to end a great year."
