CTS awards students' achievements at Celebration Evening 2019

Over 100 students from Corby Technical School received recognition and awards at this year’s Celebration Evening.

Principal Angela Reynolds welcomed guests and there was a video presentation showing the multiple events and trips that the school has staged this year.

Subject awards were given for achievement and progress in over 20 subject areas before Sixth Former Kacper spoke to the audience about his school career and recent work experience in the Houses of Parliament.

The guest speaker was young entrepreneur Sean Spooner, who has set up his own marketing agency, was previously on the Young Apprentice and attracted global news coverage for being one of the youngest magazine publishers in the world.

He is a former Brooke Weston Academy student who, along with a friend, started publishing a local magazine at the age of 14. He told the audience about his career, which has led to him interviewing celebrities including Richard Branson. He ended by outlining ten life lessons for students that he has learned over the past ten years including ‘in the pursuit of results nothing beats hard work’ and ‘learning doesn’t finish when you leave school, it starts.’

Principal Angela Reynolds then gave out Student of the Year Awards to all year groups before moving on to individual awards as follows.

Citizenship Award: Rohan

Technical Award: Kai  

Contribution Award: Thomas

Outstanding Sports Award: Lexi

Resilience Award: Anjali

Creative Arts Award: Maddie
