Academy Awards Evening
Ark William Parker Academy were delighted to host the second annual awards evening on Thursday 14th December where students past and present were rewarded and applauded for their outstanding efforts and achievements both within the academy and the local community.
It was a black tie event where governors, councillors and friends of the academy handed out prizes, trophies and certificates to the boys and sixth form students that have continuously made such fine contributions to the academy.
Over 40 students received awards which ranged from subject achievements right the way through to special awards for outstanding contributions to wider school and/or community life. The wider contribution awards were donated by several different organisations which include: The Parish of St John's Hollington Award for services to charities and the local community; The William Parker Foundation award for outstanding service to the community; The Outstanding Academic Achievement Award for excellent Examination Results; The Driver Youth Trust Award for a student who is a great member of the community and The Jacob Woudstra Award for a student who has succeeded against the odds.
Principal Stephanie Newman said “The evening was a huge success, the winners and their parents were treated to a string trio playing Christmas music, an amazing magician who exasperated us with so many fine tricks and some excellent gourmet food.
We would like to thank all of our students, parents, guests, sponsors and governors for their contributions to such a successful and enjoyable evening.”
