Regent High School Celebrates student Achievement at Prestigious Awards Ceremony
In December we celebrated our 2012 Achievement Evening, which was hosted by one of the school’s partners, Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design, in their Louis Vuitton Lecture Theatre. The event was attended by the Mayor of Camden, Cllr Heather Johnson, two of Central Saint Martins’ deans, a number of representatives from the school’s other partners, and staff, parents and students.
The prestigious awards ceremony recognised and rewarded students for their academic and extra-curricular accomplishments, progress and hard work during the 2011-2012 academic year, including exam successes, contributions to school life, and activities undertaken to encourage student involvement.
Throughout the evening guests enjoyed instrumental and vocal performances from our talented musicians, reflecting the rich and extensive extra-curricular opportunities available to Regent High School’s students.
Central Saint Martins Dean of Fashion and Textiles, Anne Smith, and Dean of Communication, Product and Spatial Design, Jonathan Barratt, opened the event. In recognition of their students’ extensive involvement in partnership work with Regent High School, the college’s deans congratulated eight Central Saint Martins students for their contribution to outreach work with Regent High School.
The event proved to be a tremendous success, with students enjoying their moment in the spotlight after much hard work and commitment to their studies.
Headteacher, Rosemary Leeke, said: “At Regent High School we value the importance of events such as our awards ceremony in recognising and rewarding outstanding student achievement. Our continued success is not only testament to the hard work of students, but to our dedicated staff, the invaluable support of parents and carers, and the extensive opportunities we provide for students that enable them to thrive within our dynamic learning environment. We look forward to building on these successes to ensure all students reach and exceed their full potential at the school.”
Cllr Heather Johnson, Mayor of Camden, presented five very special awards to the highest achieving students. Two Year 11 and two Year 13 students were honoured for achieving the best results in their respective year groups, alongside two students who worked on a variety of initiatives to foster community cohesion, with the evening finishing with an award to the student who had overcome personal challenges to achieve outstanding success. The Mayor commented: “I was delighted to be able to join Regent High School for its Achievement Evening, and to congratulate those students whose achievements were recognised. I am confident that we will continue to hear about the ongoing successes of Regent High School and its students.”
