MP hands out awards at Celebration Evening


Dozens of former Highfields students were recognised for their efforts and achievements during their last year of school as part of the Year 11 Celebration Evening.

More than 50 students - some of whom have now moved on to Sixth Form, college and training - returned to Highfields for the event to be presented with awards by special guest, Wolverhampton South West MP, Eleanor Smith.

During the night, eight Outstanding Learning School Awards were given out, along with three Pastoral Awards and two Headteacher’s Awards.

The students were nominated by staff for their commitment and achievements during their last year of school, before winners were chosen from the shortlisted candidates.

All nominees received a medal and certificate to celebrate their success, whilst trophies were given out to the winners.

Mr C Rhodes, Highfields’ Raising Achievement Manager, said: “We were delighted to welcome back our former Year 11 students to officially recognise their efforts and achievements during the last academic year.

“It was great to have our local MP, Eleanor Smith, there to address the audience and present the awards. It was a fitting celebration for all of our students’ hard work.”
