Annual Academy Awards
The Gateway Academy’s students past and present gathered together for a glittering Annual Awards Ceremony to celebrate another fantastic year of achievements, with a VIP visit from MP Jackie Doyle-Price. The Academy strive to provide high quality opportunities in all aspects of learning and throughout the last year have seen some amazing progress in sports, opportunities for trips and enrichment activities, involvement in performing arts and much, much more.
Last year’s Year 11 and 13 students collected their GCSE & A Level certificates and picked up a few more awards along the way including the JW Award for Sixth Form, Brenda Stone Endeavour Award and the Parent Staff Association award to the student who went that extra mile to help another student or teacher.
Current students didn’t miss out on the awards, collecting 100% attendance certificates, awards for outstanding progress in English, Engineering, Humanities, ICT, Maths, Science and the Vocational Enterprise Award.
Both the Chadwell & Tilbury Forums kindly attended and presented four awards each to students that have excelled in an extra-curricular activity and have contributed in a positive way to their local community. Event organiser, Allison King, said “We are very grateful for the involvement of our local forums and always look forward to welcoming them in to our Academy to help us celebrate and congratulate our students in such a heart-warming and rewarding way. This event just highlights what fantastic young people we are working with.”
High Achiever, Nicholas Fleming, hardly sat down all evening collecting three additional awards along with his many GCSE certificates, taking the Ormiston Trust Highest Achiever Award.
Academy Principal, Debbie Bull, said “It was a fantastic evening celebrating every aspect of success for Academy students. We are delighted that so many students and parents could come a long and celebrate with us and make it such a special evening.”
