Students at Solihull Sixth Form College joined friends and colleagues from schools within the Summit Learning Trust to celebrate their successes this week, at the annual Trust Awards Evening took place.
26 students from the College joined pupils from Trust primary and secondary schools to get prizes for attainment and progress. Among those receiving awards were Ben Clarke and Saffron Marsh, who got awards for their work within the College community, often going “above and beyond” that which is expected of students. Prizes for all curriculum areas were also awarded.
College Principal Martin Sullivan commented:
“It was a wonderful evening, which allowed us to celebrate the achievements and progress of our students, while also coming together with colleagues from across the Trust. It comes on the back of a fantastic set of results this summer and we are looking to build on that success with this group of students and their colleagues.”
Also at the event, which was held at the inspirational Great Hall at the University of Birmingham, were young people from Erdington Hall, The Oaklands, Pegasus and Yarnfield Primary schools. Secondary school pupils from Cockshut Hill, Lyndon and Ninestiles Schools were also getting accolades. The event was led by Trust Chief Executive Catherine Anwar and the Principals at the Trust schools.
There were musical performances from students across the Trust, including from College student Adam Parsons, who performed “November Rain” by Guns’n’Roses.
