Year 12 Awards Evening

Celebrating academic excellence, community and culture

Sir John Deane’s put culture and community at the heart of its celebration of Year 12 during the annual awards evening in June.

Students were recognised for their everyday contributions as well as their hard work and commitment to their studies.

Prizes were given for academic excellence across all subjects, as well as sporting achievements, music and performing arts, courage, drive and citizenship.

Principal Chris Atherton said: “The individuals who received an award have all made a significant contribution to the life of the College. They have embraced the opportunities they have been given to excel academically, to enrich themselves and those around them and overcome personal challenge.

“They embody all that we cherish and hold dear. They are curious, caring and responsible in ways that humble us all.”

Awarding the prizes was Cllr Andrew Cooper. Former Rudheath Senior Academy student Sharon Fadipe-Davids, who learnt to speak English in 2019 when she moved to the UK from Nigeria, delivered an inspiring speech, which reflected on her journey so far and her ambition to succeed.
