Top-achieving students from Churchill Academy were lauded for their academic efforts at the school’s presentation evening.

Among the winners were Tuanxi Arlotte, who won the maths prize, while Ed Thurlow and George Rabin shared the science award.

Callum Smith took home the Barry Wratten Prize for Resilience, and Alice Vaughn won the headteacher’s award for best GCSE performance.

Greta Guccione won the headteacher’s prize for best performance at A-level.

The school welcomed former student Helen McLeod-Jones, partner at professional services giant Ernst & Young, as guest speaker, and she offered her wisdom to the students.

A school spokesman said: “The audience was delighted to celebrate the achievements of the top-performing students in the many varied aspects of school life.

“Thanks to Helen for her inspiring words, and our congratulations go to all the prize-winners.”
