In November, we invited the Class of 2017 and their families to Wellacre to celebrate student successes and achievements at our annual Presentation Evening.

Over 100 students received a variety of awards and trophies in recognition of their hard work and endeavour, as well as collecting their GCSE examination certificates.

Throughout the evening, awards for exceptional academic, educational and personal success were presented including subject prizes for ‘excellent commitment to learning’, as well as for ‘excellent attendance’ and ‘achievement against all odds’.

Principal Miss Wicks presented Jack Rimmer with the ‘The Principal’s Award for Outstanding Contribution’, we welcomed Chair of Governors Mr Harrison to present Bradley Green with ‘The Governor Award for Special Service to the Academy’ and Mr Duffy, former Year 11 Learning Director, named Thomas Moorhouse ‘The Billy Molden Inspirational Achievement Award’ winner in memory of an inspirational young student.

Presentation Evening is an opportunity for students and parents to rekindle fond memories of their time at Wellacre and show our continued support for former students in their chosen pathway.  During the evening we asked our students about their post-16 activities, with half studying A Levels and half BTECs to develop their careers in wide ranging fields such as business, commerce, sport and the arts to engineering, construction and architecture. A quarter were working part time to gain work-related experience and boost their future opportunities.

Miss Wicks, said:

“Our annual Presentation Evening was a fantastic success and showcases the calibre of inspirational students at Wellacre.  We are immensely proud of the Class of 2017 and all they have achieved.  Our students clearly demonstrate by always doing their best, amazing things can happen.”
