Jon Coles, chief executive of United Learning, said: “Each year, these awards recognise the remarkable achievements of students from across our group and provide us with an opportunity to celebrate their talents, subject excellence and determination to succeed.

“Yet again, we had the difficult task of choosing winners from among a very impressive range of candidates nationally and I hope therefore that every award winner takes great pride in their success.

“The Best in Everyone Awards are also a time for us to show our appreciation for the hard work and commitment of staff across our schools and the crucial role they play in supporting and enabling students to achieve their very best.

“While this year’s awards celebrate several particularly outstanding contributions, I would like to thank all our teachers, support staff and governors who continue to make a difference in each of our schools.”

The ceremony was held in Stratford-upon-Avon, where award winners gathered with teachers, guests and representatives from United Learning.
