Alford’s John Spendluffe Technology College holds annual presentation evening

THE John Spendluffe Technology College in Alford held its annual presentation evening at Alford Manor House recently.

Torrential rain earlier in the day put the event in doubt but the clouds cleared and the sun came out to shine favourably on the award winners.

The evening celebrated the success of students across Key Stages three and four in all curriculum areas in addition to House prize winners.

The Headteacher Mr Beverley described the wide range of achievements that the students of JSTC have accrued over the previous year, including the best ever GCSE results from the last academic year, and indicated that he was looking forward to further success this coming year.

Mary Overton, Emily Abbott, Abigail Saddington, Melissa Ball and James Emery entertained the audience with pieces from their Performing Arts course. 

“It has become something of a tradition at the school for former students to present awards to inspire current students to success,” said a spokesperson.

“The prizes on this occasion were presented by Miss Emma Fulwood, who has had an interesting few years, marked recently by an opportunity for her to run with the Olympic Torch.

“Her words of inspiration described how students from John Spendluffe can go on to successfully pursue their ambitions in life,” they added.

The evening continued with a chance to enjoy refreshments with musical accompaniment from Alford Silver Band.
