Thursday 23rd June 7pm: KS3 Annual Prize Giving Evening

This was a very special event  performed to a very full house and provided a fabulous evening of entertainment and celebration. A very large number of Key Stage 3 students received rewards for a range of achievements including progress, attainment and contribution to the community. In addition there were a number of special awards given by Governors and the Head Teacher.


The entire evening was punctuated with performances from St Mary's students and included extracts from the Lion King, our own school production of Joseph, a song performed by Sem that she sang at the Chamber of Commerce Inspired Awards event as well as a number of items performed by St Mary's own House Band. Every act was exceptional and reflected the considerable talents of our students.


Thank you to all of our guests and parents/carers who supported this event and to the many staff who have supported students and who came along to present the awards. Congratulations to every single student who received awards - this was an evening to make us all very proud!
