Camborne students celebrate their exam successes at awards evening
Camborne Science and International Academy celebrated the success and talents of its A-level and GCSE students at its annual presentation evening recently which was attended by more than 400 guests, students, teachers and parents.
“It was an incredible evening, a particularly enjoyable and memorable occasion where awards were presented for A-level and GCSE performance in the full range of subjects and for best overall performance,” said vice principal, Emma Haase. “It’s always such a highlight of the school calendar and this year was no exception. It was amazing to see students, parents and staff beaming with pride.”
The Richard Bath Trophy for outstanding academic achievement at A-Level was presented to Peter Newing and the Penventon Shield for the GCSE student of the year was presented to Sophie Morris.
There were also awards for the sixth form head boy/head girl and deputies from last year and Nathan Callaway, Gwyneth Lawrence, Giorgia Holding, Annie Clemo, Lois Symons, Yasmin Quaatey, Tristan Reynolds and Hannah Curtis were all thanked for their contribution to the success of the VI Form that went far beyond the expected.
The Stone Computer Award for Information Technology 2017 was presented to Connor Francis and the Pastoral Award was presented to Chelsea Warne for her commitment in supporting the wider school community.
This year’s awards were presented by governors Nicki Burgess, Tim Johns, Claire Harvey; Nigel Jeffery from the Penventon Hotel, Danni Perry, head of VI form, and Ian Kenworthy, principal of CSIA.
“Sophie Stephens, Eloise Golding and Callum Wilton entertained guests with their exceptional musical performances of Hello by Adele, Rise Up by Andra Day and No Rag Time by Zivkovic,” said Mrs Haase. “We have such incredible talent here at CSIA and that’s why our celebration evenings are so important.”
In his address, Mr Kenworthy spoke of his pride and privilege at leading such an outstanding school, congratulating the students on their excellent summer examination results both at A level and at GCSE. He was particularly proud of Camborne Science and International Academy maintaining its position as one of the highest performing state secondary schools in Cornwall for the fifth year running.
“We’re incredibly proud of our students,” he said. “Their commitment and determination to give their absolute best at our school, and the support of their parents and families is truly admirable. It continues to pay dividends.”
