An awards evening is to be staged honouring the efforts and achievements of Highfields’ sporty students.
Highfields will host its second PE Legacy Awards on July 12th following the huge success of last year’s inaugural event. The event will celebrate the wealth of sporting talent at Highfields in a range of categories, including Sports Person of the Year, Sports Team of the Year and Elite Performer.
This year the categories are being extended to honour a wider variety of students, including the addition of an award for Dancer of the Year (for KS3 and KS4) and a Year 11 GCSE PE Contribution Award.
Members of staff behind the ceremony are determined to build on the success of last year’s Legacy Awards by inviting along two speakers, who are yet to be announced, whilst sports leaders will present the accolades in front of family and friends.
Invited guests will also be entertained with performances from members of Highfields' Barefoot Dance Group, GCSE Dance students and members of the school’s Gymnastics team.
Head of PE, Mr C Brickwood, said: “We are overwhelmed with the superb commitment, strong leadership and outstanding personal performances and are delighted to be staging our second PE Legacy Awards to celebrate students’ achievements, efforts and commitment to sport.
“Last year’s event was a fitting celebration of our students’ achievements in sports and this promises to be another fantastic evening.”
