Year 11 Leavers' Awards Evening 2017

The Park Community school hall was full to capacity on Wednesday 15th November 2017 for the GCSE Awards Presentation, when Guest of Honour Alana Spencer, winner of TV’s “The Apprentice”, presented GCSE certificates and other Special Awards to this year’s school leavers.

Alana gave an inspirational talk to the guests, encouraging the ex-students to follow their dreams, not to procrastinate and to ‘go for it’.  This has clearly worked well for Alana as she is currently developing her business in partnership with Lord Alan Sugar.

School leavers and their guests joined with staff to celebrate and congratulate another high achieving year group.

Headteacher Gareth Roscoe added “It was great to see the school hall full of our ex- students, spending time reflecting on their progress and development during their time at Park.  They have achieved highly and are a credit to themselves, their parent/carers and the school.”

Alana Spencer commented "It was a lovely evening and so wonderful to see so many students collecting awards and celebrating their exam success.”
