The cream of Arthur Terry! Prize students enjoy awards and tea at celebration afternoon

The sweet taste of success (and cake) filled Moor Hall Hotel as students from Arthur Terry School attended a prestigious awards ceremony and afternoon tea on 20 September.

Nearly 40 young people from years 8-13 at the outstanding school stepped up to receive awards. The accolades ranged from remarkable successes in individual subject areas where students had excelled academically, to awards for outstanding contributions to school life and the local community.

A special mention goes to year 12’s Amber Mai Davis, who was the only student to collect two awards. Amber has shown such incredible resilience and determination in the face of such adversity and was thoroughly deserving of this recognition.

Senior school leaders, Evvie Panayiotou and Justin Hurlock, assisted with giving out the awards and spoke with such passion and virtue. Guests were also privileged to be treated to musical entertainment from Emily Coles and Lee Wild, two talented year 13 students who held lead roles in the school’s ‘Rock of Ages’ show.

Associate Headteacher Samantha Kibble said:

We’d like to thank our parents and carers from the bottom of our hearts. We are so lucky at Arthur Terry to have such engaged parents who not only support the school through a myriad of ways, but also, crucially, nurture and encourage our wonderful young people to be the best that they can be. At Arthur Terry we feel that it is vital that our students feel their hard work is recognised and this event is just one example of that. We would like to extend our congratulations to every award winner for the hard work and dedication they have demonstrated.”

She added:

Finally, we’d like to extend the challenge to those students who did not win awards this year, to strive to work as hard as they can and reach for the stars, so that they can experience all of this next year!”
