Awards Evening 2018

On Wednesday 28th November, The King’s held their annual awards evening for 2017/18. The event celebrated the academic achievements across subject areas of students from all year groups including those who have moved on earlier this year for pastures new.

Each curriculum area were given the privilege to nominate a student from across all key stages and Mrs Verow, Head teacher and David Shemilt (Chair of governors), awarded these personally. The senior leaders spoke highly of the outstanding achievement, exceptional progress and commendable effort of the award winners.

The evening was also filled with performances including a song from the ‘Shakespeare Rocks’ choir and various readings written and delivered by students who took up the challenge to engage in public speaking.

This year had 70 students receiving awards and more than 100 people in attendance including students, parents, Governors and award sponsors. Presenting the awards and guest speaker for the evening was Mr Matthew Tabinor, who is a former student of Clough Hall. Following the awards, Mr Tabinor delivered an inspiring speech referring to his career as a speciality registrar in renal medicine. 

He said, “I was delighted to return to The King’s to celebrate the success and fantastic achievements of its students and staff. It was also a pleasure to meet with current and former staff, including some of my teachers from my time at the school. I was particularly impressed with how the school has blossomed over the years into such a welcoming and active learning environment.”

Mrs Verow, Headteacher said "It was a truly wonderful experience to share an evening with our amazing award winners. The contribution that our winners make to our school community and to the town as a whole is second to none.  We at The King’s are always conscious of our place at the center of our community and the fact that our successes are built on the work of those in the wider community as well as our own parents, students and staff."
