Young people's educational progress celebrated

Published date

On Monday (2 December) 83 young people were rewarded for their educational achievements at the annual Harlow Educational Progress Awards.

This year’s awards were held at Harlow Playhouse and were attended by over 300 people. The awards recognise young people who have made significant progress in their education and who have made a real contribution to their schools and the community, often overcoming different challenges on the way.

Each young person was given a framed certificate and gift vouchers to mark their achievement. Trophies were presented to the winning schools.

The overall winner of the awards was Troy Thompson. The overall winning school was Churchgate Church of England School.

The awards were attended by the Chair of Harlow Council, Clive Souter, and Harlow Council’s Chief Executive Brian Keane with Doctor John Keddie presenting the awards.

Brian Keane, Chief Executive of Harlow Council, said:

These awards are our way of recognising the educational progress and contribution young people make to their schools and our town. We want all young people to be supported to fulfil their potential and meet their aspirations, because Harlow has a very bright future. Thousands of new jobs, career and training opportunities are and will be created in our town. There will be jobs and opportunities for all, and we want the young people, who go to school and college in Harlow to be ready to seize these opportunities.”
