Members of dance troupe Diversity were the hosts at a recent event that celebrated the achievements of more than 60 pupils in Academy Transformation Trust (ATT) schools.

Pupils from 20 of the trust’s academies received their awards at a Birmingham Council House ceremony.

Hosted by Diversity dancers, Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiely, the ATT pupil awards recognised the achievements of pupils across ten categories, including academic excellence, character, transformational progress, overcoming adversity and leadership.

Host Banjo said: “The obstacles that these pupils have overcome is so inspiring and it is an honour to reward and recognise them for their achievements across a variety of categories.”

Ian Cleland, chief executive of the trust, added “Our pupils keep surprising us with their accomplishments. They all show passion and enthusiasm in everything they do, and our awards give us the chance to reward them for all their hard work.”

The trust currently works with 22 primary and secondary academies and further education providers in the Midlands, east of England and south east.
