during the most difficult of times.

She also told the students of her experience of avoiding a helicopter while flying a fast jet, reinforcing the importance of remaining focused on your ultimate goals and adapting to challenging situations with resilience, self-belief, and clear thinking.

Headteacher, Grant Edgar said of the evening: “This was a lovely evening in which parents, staff, and governors of Banovallum could once again come together to celebrate the hard work and exceptional achievements of students from Years 7 to 11 in the Academic Year 2021 – 22.

"These students achieved such great things despite the extreme pressures of the pandemic. Having the event in the autumn term allows us to celebrate the students who performed best in their GCSE exams and who helped us to secure our best ever set of results.

“The Awards’ Evening doesn’t only celebrate academic excellence. There were awards celebrating effort, community involvement, the arts and sporting achievement. This highlights the importance of all three elements of the education partnership: parents, students, and school, working together.

"I would like to thank all the staff at the school for their absolute commitment to enabling all students to achieve their very best and to parents and carers for their support over the last few years, and everyone involved in the evening for making it run so successfully.

"Special thanks must also go to the Jobson Trust for their generosity in supporting the event, the Governors, the Friends of Banovallum and the Horncastle Education Trust for supporting the evening and to Anne Northam for arranging the flowers for the evening.”
