Cordeaux Academy pupils have been rewarded for their hard work and efforts at the annual prize giving ceremony at St James’ Church.
At the ceremony on Friday (September 11), pupils and teachers were joined by special guest Victoria Atkins MP - who gave a speech on ‘Attaining Your Goals’ - and the Mayor of Louth, Coun Sue Locking,
The Principal’s Trophies went to Jessica Cotton (Girls), George Ware (Boys) and Cavan Campbell (Sixth Form), who all received fantastic GCSE and A-level results respectively over the summer.
Other special awards went to Beth Bratley (Pam Darby Trophy for Progress Through Perseverance), and Emilio Molave (Robert Anderson Award for Most Improved Student in English Literature).
The Taylor Trophy for ‘Success Through Diligence’ went to Jack Flockton and Sixth Former Jordan Jolly.
A special trophy in memory of Jordan Eyre, a pupil who died following a road traffic accident last year, was awarded to a student who has always shown great humour and strength of character throughout their time at Cordeaux.
This year the award went to Jordan Standland; his qualities have also been recognised by Lincolnshire Motors who have taken him on as an apprentice.
In the GCSE subject awards, Jessica Cotton achieved a remarkable feat by winning three trophies (Science, Art and English), while Archie Ingamells received the Lower School prize for English in addition to the Year Nine Media award.
The programme of events at the prize giving ceremony included a warm welcome from academy principal Patrick Daley, the speech from Victoria Atkins MP, and music provided by Kieran Mason, Philippa Demery, Dana Lockyer and Beth Pearson.
Mr Daley said: “Prize giving is an important part of Cordeaux Academy which allows us to come together as a community and celebrate the achievements and successes of our students across a wide range of areas.
“We are very proud of our students and I look forward to future successes in the years to come.”
Victioria Atkins MP added: “It was my pleasure to present prizes to students at the Cordeaux Academy prize-giving ceremony last week.
“I was greatly impressed by the hard-work and achievement of the pupils, many of whom were recognised in the awards ceremony.
“I would like to congratulate the students and all those who support them in their studies. Parents, teachers and the many other staff who work with our young people play an important role in our society.
“I wish all those present the best for the coming term.”
