More than 60 pupils have been recognised for their achievements at Academy Transformation Trust’s Pupil Awards 2016.

Pupils from 20 academies, which are part of Academy Transformation Trust (ATT), received their awards at a ceremony on Thursday 8th December 2016 at Birmingham Council House.

The ceremony was hosted by street dancers Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiely, who are from Diversity, the dance troupe who won Britain’s Got Talent in 2009. The ceremony brought together pupils, staff and parents from The Trust’s academies to recognise and celebrate pupils’ achievements across 10 categories, including academic excellence, character, transformational progress, overcoming adversity, and leadership.

Jordan and Perri from Diversity, said: “The obstacles that these pupils have overcome is so inspiring and it is an honour to reward and recognise them for their achievements across a variety of categories. Congratulations to all of the pupils for their hard work – needless to say we are very privileged to be a part of such a wonderful event!”

Ian Cleland, CEO and founder of Academy Transformation Trust, added: “Our pupils are really great and they keep surprising us with their accomplishments – we are extremely proud of them. They all show passion and enthusiasm in everything they do and our awards give us the chance to reward them for all their hard work. Congratulations to every single one of them.”

Academy Transformation Trust is a not for profit trust working with 22 primary and secondary academies and further education providers in the Midlands, East of England and South East.
