Students celebrated at BWT Sports Awards
Talented students who are passionate about sport were celebrated at our first ever BWT Sports Awards.
Hundreds of students and parents attended the awards ceremony which were held at the Core Theatre in Corby on Friday. (May 6th)
Our young people from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 4 were recognised for their commitment to sport with 18 individuals and teams picking up prizes.
They were presented with their prizes by special guests Chair of the Youth Sport Trust Baroness Sue Campbell and former BMX World Champion Mike Mullen.
BWT Director of Sport Kirstie Smith said: “It was a great evening and a real celebration of the sport that happens across our Trust of ten schools.
“As a Trust we recognise the importance of sport in young people’s lives and what it does to enhance well being, build confidence and teach team skills.”
During the evening all nominees were invited onto the stage and the audience were told about their sporting achievements.
Winners included Year 11 student from Thomas Clarkson Academy Charlotte Cameron who currently holds a world kickboxing title.
There were also messages of support and congratulation from the stars from the world of England Rugby and BMxer Mike Mullen demonstrated a trick with Executive Principal John Henrys.
