Staff, students, parents and governors enjoyed a rare ray of sunshine at The Skinners’ Kent Academy annual prize giving ceremony.
A wonderful lunch, prepared by Academy students and staff, was served on the lawn before the ceremony at 2pm.
Dozens of students received awards for academic attainment and progress and many received prizes for their extra-curricular activities, including charitable work and representing the Academy.
In a passionate speech the Principal, Mrs Carr, reflected on the successes of the Academy since it opened in 2009.
"These three years have seen us open the Academy, improve academic achievement, create an ethos of mutual respect ensuring high standards of behaviour, and deliver elegance in how we look and in all that we do. We have not faltered in our vision that all students at this Academy deserve the very best in order to achieve the very best."
The ceremonies were led by the Master of The Skinners’ company and Academy Chairman of Governors, Mr Andrew Boggis. Awards were presented by Mrs Alison Monk, Vice Chair of the Governors.
