Academy students’ success

Have your say

Newmarket Academy celebrated achievements of its students at a special awards evening on Thursday.

Sixty four students were recognised for their progress, achievement and leadership in their subjects and houses and awarded prizes sponsored by the local community.

The awards were presented by Grant Harris, who recently took over as chief executive at the town’s British Racing School. He spoke about his own journey through education and work and told students how it important it was to pursue their dreams and not accept anything less.

“The young people here represent the aspiration of this school, and I thank them for your determination, leadership and ambition. You are making this school one the community can be proud of,” said Academy head Nick Froy.
