Ex-pupils returned to Caister Academy for an evening of celebration at the recent Awards Evening. The event saw young people rewarded for their academic excellence and their contributions to the school and the community.
This year, Caister achieved some of the best results in the school’s history, including:
Marc Jordan, Chief Executive of Creative Education Trust, and Alison Baldwin, Head of Year 11 at Caister Academy awarded subject and achievement awards. GCSE and vocational subject certificates were also presented. Along with the students, parents, staff and Governors of the Academy, associates and colleagues from local primary schools, colleges and other educational institutes joined us in the celebrations.
Head Boy, Ben Moore, delivered a report of the roundup of the year. In addition, entertainment was provided by Caister alumni; singing of ‘New York” by Alicia Keyes, whilst current year 11 students Lucy Cambridge, performed “High Hopes” by Panic! At the Disco, and Cassandra Smith performed “Worst of You” by Maisy Peters.
Ann Bridges, Acting Principal at Caister Academy said:
“Awards evening is an occasion to share some of the amazing talents and achievements of our pupils. It is a privilege to work with and have the opportunity to see pupils develop into well-rounded individuals ready to take the next step in their journey.
The relationships established between pupils and staff founded on mutual respect are a testament to the ethos and values of the school as we continue to ensure that all pupils are given the opportunity to “Be the Best they can Be””
