Charity helpers, volunteers, carers and students showing incredible honesty have been honoured in an official Christmas ‘Heroes’ ceremony.

Students received Hero Awards during an online celebration of acts of kindness and bravery.  

Nominations from family members, staff and other students have been pouring in and Priory Community School Academy are recognising all their heroes with a special online event to mark their achievements and values. 

Over 20 students and their families attended the event to mark the inspiring acts of kindness and bravery shown by young people across our community.  

The students were winners in the ‘Be a Hero’ campaign at Priory Community School Academy

In an Oscar style online ceremony, The Priory Learning Trust initiative saw them rewarded with prizes sponsored by the Grand Pier including a free rides pass. 


Students were rewarded for demonstrating exceptional acts of kindness, courage, and other character and attitude traits.

There were also incredible acts of charity, community, volunteer and team work, care, and those who are carers at home.

One student was also rewarded for handing in a wallet after they found it in the street.

Organiser James Wilmot said: “We want to honour each and every one of these students who are showing exceptional character and extra-mile work in so many areas.”

Principal Angelos Markoutsas said: “We are incredibly humbled by being around so many excellent ambassadors of PCSA and young people in general.”

TPLT Head of School Improvement, Nathan Jenkins said: “These are brilliant role models for students, young people and the community in general.”
