'Inspirational Young Person' and 'Educational Setting' recognised at Raising the Bar Awards

A pupil at Stradbroke High School has been recognised as a runner up in the Inspirational Young person of the Year Award at the Raising the Bar Awards, run by Suffolk County Council. The school itself is also a runner up in the Educational Setting of the Year category.  

Aiden Perkins was congratulated at the event at The Apex in Bury St. Edmunds this week, as a young person who has a positive attitude and approach and is a role model who inspires others. His nomination included the following: “It is in his extra-curricular activities where Aiden excels. He has a real passion and talent for dancing; particularly ballet, sequence and ballroom dancing. Aiden has successfully auditioned twice for the English Youth ballet, appearing in Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty. Aiden thinks very positively about his future and aims to get a scholarship to go to college or university.”

The aim of this award is to recognise children and young people whose attitudes and positive approach to life has a direct impact on the social, moral, cultural and spiritual aspects of life of others.

Aiden said;” It was a fab evening with music and great food – it was really exciting to be there. “

As a runner up in the Educational Setting of the Year category, Stradbroke High School was recognised as a place for learning that has continuously raised achievement as well as having developed strong leadership and ideas. Its evidence of attainment, progress and its Ofsted rating was acknowledged in addition to its leadership and vision.

Deputy Headteacher John Axtell said: “We are very proud of Aiden who thoroughly deserves to be recognised for his achievements. We are equally delighted that the school has been acknowledged for the excellent progress that pupils make in their five year journey through the school.“

The Raising the Bar Awards celebrate and recognise excellence across education in Suffolk. It is a chance to say thank you to those who are making a difference or to show how proud they are of star pupil or student.
