2018 Awards Evening

Attitude, Effort and community spirit take centre stage!!

October 10th was the date of the annual Cornwallis Academy Awards evening.

Our “Awards Evening” embodies the school’s focus on having high ambitions for all and putting 100% effort to achieve our very best, celebrating the hard work and dedication of all our students.

Over 200 awards were presented to students recognising students for ‘Consistent effort and commitment to improve grades in Maths’, ‘Determination to succeed producing a creative final outcome in Graphics’, ‘Outstanding effort and being a positive role model to others’.

Mrs Linney-Drouet, Headteacher, “I am proud of all our students but particularly of those who show true determination to always do their very best.  This evening is about publically rewarding our students for being a true asset to themselves, to the school and to you as parents and relatives. Young people today are under huge pressure and I admire those whose self-motivation and resilience allow them to shine and be true to themselves despite everything around them.  Their first class attitude towards learning and school in general puts them in good stead for their future.”

Mrs Linney-Drouet finishing the evening inviting any parents or members of the wider community that wanted to view the extensive renovation work which has been carried out to convert the plazas to conventional classrooms or the building of the new library to come along to the sixth form open evening or contact her to arrange a visit.
