EDUCATION AWARDS 2019: Spalding High School and Spalding Monkshouse Primary School take top prizes




"What an absolutely inspirational evening" - that was the overwhelming view after the fifth Lincolnshire Free Press and Spalding Guardian Education Awards in Spalding tonight.

Pre-schools, primary and secondary schools from across South Holland, as well as Bourne, the Deepings, Kirton and Swineshead, came together inside the Function Hall at Spalding's South Holland Centre to celebrate the best of the area's educational provision.

Two Spalding schools, Monkshouse Primary School and Spalding High School, came away with the two top prizes of Primary and Secondary School of the Year respectively.

But the winners were spread evenly across the Spalding Today news area as Zoe West, of Kirton Primary School, and Shelby Mombourquette, of Peele Community College, Long Sutton, were named Most Inspiration Primary and Secondary Teachers respectively.

Amy Davey, of Bourne's Willoughby School, took home the Support Staff Award, while Steven Coote, head boy at Willoughby, won Student of the Year.

In a week when Spalding Academy was judged "Good" in all areas by Ofsted, Year 11 Liana Juberte was announced as Most Improved Student.

The Outstanding Sporting Achievement winner was street dancer Poppy Gill, of Spalding High School, while Georgie Van Dyke, of the same school, took the individual Environmental Award in what was a highly competitive category.

It was so competitive that a group award was also presented to Weston Hills Primary School.

There was a similar outcome in the Contribution to the Community category where Sally Donaldson, of The Deepings School, and South View Community Primary School, Crowland, were both winners.

Finally, a pre-school set up in Spalding just ten months ago, BeBright, accepted the Pre-School of the Year Award.

The awards evening was summed up by Lincolnshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Marc Jones, who said: "What an absolutely inspirational evening, showcasing some incredible talent across the area."
