PUPILS from four Essex academies are jumping for joy after picking up a host of awards from Britain’s Got Talent winners, Diversity, at Academy Transformation Trust’s first ever national awards.

A total of 59 pupils from Kingsmoor Academy, Mark Hall Academy, Ravens Academy and The Hathaway Academy, which form part of Academy Transformation Trust (ATT), were recognised at The Trust’s much-anticipated Pupil Awards 2015.

Academy Transformation Trust is a not for profit trust working with primary and secondary academies and further education providers in the Midlands, East of England and South East.

Hosted by street dancers Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiely from Britain’s Got Talent 2009 winners, Diversity, the ceremony brought together pupils, staff and parents from The Trust’s 18 academies to recognise and celebrate pupils’ achievements across 10 categories.

Three pupils from Mark Hall Academy received awards, including Callum Sullivan who won the award for the ‘Tell Us a Story’ writing competition, Jude Mante who received the Transformational Progress award, and Ashleigh Callaghan who won the Innovation and Community award. Ravens Academy pupils also picked up two awards, including Louie Bowers who won the Sport award and George Cook who won the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) award.

Corinne Franceschi, Principal at Mark Hall Academy, said: “When Jude started with us, he lacked confidence which was impacting on his progress. After various strategies to help him with his confidence, Jude became more confident and determined to improve at the beginning of Year 9 when we became an academy.

“Jude continues to lead in all aspects of academy life. He has been a successful sports leader delivering coaching sessions to primary school aged students and supported other students in their development. He is always keen to learn new things and is constantly striving to improve.”

Other winners included 43 pupils from the Kingsmoor Academy judo team who picked up the Outstanding Team award. To add to the success, 11 pupils from The Hathaway Academy were recognised for being one of two academies to win ATT’s 2015 pupil choir competition.

Jordan & Perri from Diversity, said: “Our motto is ‘Dream, Believe, Achieve’ and we aim to inspire young people with passion, therefore it was a privilege to support young individuals and present them with their awards!”

Joyce Hodgetts, Managing Director of Academy Transformation Trust, added: “We are delighted to have honoured our pupils for their achievements in our first ever awards ceremony. Congratulations to all our pupils, we are very proud of their accomplishments.”
