More than 150 students at the West Grantham Academy St Hugh’s have been recognised for their exemplary behaviour at an awards ceremony.

The students attended the evening after their teachers nominated them for going above and beyond in their lessons, free time and extra-curricular activities.

The Mayor and Mayoress of Grantham, Coun Ian Stokes and his wife Sarah, The Rev David Shenton, Chair of Directors Alison Fox and Grantham College Principal Linda Houtby were among those who presented the prizes. Kevin Lawry, President Elect of the the Rotary Club of Grantham, presented a special award to five students who raised the highest amount of sponsorship in the recent Swimarathon.

Parents were then given a tour of the academy’s new Element Centre which includes a student support area, dance studio, music room and hair and beauty salon.

Academy Principal Louise Bennett said: “The inaugural P5 Celebration Evening was an inspiring event which served to reward and publicly acknowledge the many and varied achievements of academy students. It is testament to their hard work, enthusiasm and engagement in learning that the hall was bursting with parents, staff and dignitaries and I was exceptionally proud to be part of it.”
