LYMM High School students have once again been recognised for their high achievements with an annual awards evening, although this year, it was a virtual event, live streamed into students’ homes.
Instead of the usual canapés and drinks prepared and served by Lymm’s catering students, viewers were welcomed Head Teacher Gwyn Williams speaking to an empty hall. Head of Halls Mr Hayes and Assistant Headteacher Mr Thompson, who jointly compered the evening, were the only audience members.
During the ceremony, films from Heads of Faculty, Heads of Year and members of the Senior Leadership team spoke highly of the outstanding achievement, exceptional progress and commendable effort of the award winners. Over ninety students were recognised for their outstanding academic, pastoral, personal and sporting achievements over the past year.
Even Local MP Andy Carter popped in to wish all the winners well.
The evening was also filled with performances from Lymm High School’s Brass Ensemble made up of Year 9 and Year 12 students: Tom Leighton-Jones, Suzie Underwood, Charley Davies, Bradley Gibson and Tom Davies. Year 13 students, Rosie May Larkin, Ella Worsley and Eve Shaw, also sang beautifully during the second interlude of the ceremony.
Lymm’s international sporting success was highlighted by Mr Hampton. Eleven students have represented England, Wales and Great Britain this year. The evening ended with the most prestigious award of ‘Outstanding Contribution to School’ being presented to Deputy Head Girl, Rosie May Larkin.
The winning students were praised by Mr Williams for their hard work. As were their parents for supporting them in their endeavours.
“This is such an important event in the school’s calendar year that we simply couldn’t allow it to not go ahead”, said Mr Williams. “We are really pleased that the students’ efforts could still be recognised in this virtual ceremony. Very well done and huge congratulations to all winners.”
