They were congratulated at a glitzy ceremony at the Winter Gardens on Weston seafront.

They were rewarded for brilliant academic achievements, their character and extra special good deeds.

In a glitzy evening, there was wonderful signing and music from students Ginny Rulli-Gibbs and Emily Ritchie. Ginny also won the Principal’s award for Outstanding Contribution to School Life

One of the guest speakers was former student, Jack Clark – who is founder of the Climate Justice Revolution (CJR).

The other guest speaker was Bristol Bears player, Steven Luatua, who has recently returned from the rugby world cup representing Samoa.

Principal Mark Tidman said: This was a terrific evening, with so many incredible students being acknowledged for their brilliance. 

“We want every student to reach their full potential and rewarding both attainment and effort is very important to us. Rewards are a big part of our successful school. 

“We really do want to continue to praise our young people and we thank parents, carers and students, for their continued involvement and support of WCSA.”

The ambitious academy is part of the high-achieving The Priory Learning Trust (TPLT).
