Churchill Academy held its annual presentation evening on September 12, celebrating the successes of its top students.

More than 130 pupils saw their efforts recognised at the ceremony, with George Rabin winning the headteacher’s prize for best GCSE performance.

Hanna Whydle and Lucy Nolan shared the headteacher’s prize for best A-level results.

Former Churchill student and TV actor Stefanie Martini, who has starred in shows Doctor Thorne, Emerald City and Prime Suspect 1973, was the school’s guest of honour and handed out the awards to the deserving students.

She also delivered a speech on how her time at Churchill has shaped her career to inspire the youngsters.

The students then enjoyed musical performances from Lucy Buncombe and brothers George and John Skeen who closed the night in style.
