Croydon pupils recognised for their academic achievements at awards night at Fairfield Halls
Pupils from secondary schools across Croydon were recognised for their academic, sporting and community-based achievements last week.
The annual awards ceremony, which has been running for 10 years, was held at Fairfield Halls on Thursday, March 7.
Year nine and 11 pupils were celebrated for their examination results, sporting prowess and acts of kindness to help others.
The night was attended by parents, teachers, governors and cabinet member for children, families and learning, Councillor Tim Pollard.
Coun Pollard said: “Throughout the year I visit schools across Croydon to see and hear for myself the varied experiences and aspirations of pupils, teachers and heads.
“Academically pupils in Croydon have never done better, with 87 per cent of young people now leaving school with five or more good GCSEs.
“Tonight is important because it lets us come together to celebrate the very best and brightest and to recognise success in its many different forms.”
