Prizegiving – An Unforgettable Night At Stockport Plaza

Our school community came together to celebrate in style, as we returned to Stockport Plaza for our first physical prizegiving ceremony since 2019.

After a brilliant performance from our outstanding school choir to open the event, followed by welcome speeches from our Chair of Governors, Mr Robinson, and our Principal, Mrs McCann, we moved on to handing out the first awards of the night.

Over 280 trophies were presented over the course of two hours, which recognised achievements in everything from leadership, sports, merits, attendance and much more.

No less than ten Year 11 students were presented with a laptop or iPad on the night in recognition of achieving 5 years of 100% attendance, while another student received a signed and framed Manchester United shirt after winning the inaugural ‘Manchester United Foundation Award’.

The trophies were all presented to students by our guest speaker for the night, Figen Murray OBE, who spoke to the audience about the philosophy of ‘Ubuntu’, or ‘I am because we are’, which promotes the values of unity and kindness.

Principal Mrs McCann said: “We have been waiting so long to welcome everybody back to celebrate with us – it has been well overdue but it has also been worth the wait.

“It has been amazing to recognise so many achievements from throughout the year and I would like to thank our students, their families, our staff and governors, our sponsors and in fact the whole Stockport Academy community for making this night one we will never forget.”

You can view all of our photos from the evening via the album on our Facebook page.
