KIRKBY COLLEGE attend the National Crimebeat Awards 2018 in London

Winning Joint 2nd place for their efforts and entries into the Dragon’s Den Style Project 8

On Wednesday 18th April 2018 Mr Johnson along with four Year 11 students, Harry Stevens, Ella-Jay Hayes, Abigail Webber and Sophie Elliott attended the National Crimebeat Awards in London. It was a very special event this year as the National Crimebeat Awards celebrated its 20th Anniversary.

The students stood up in front of 15 other counties and explained their entry into last year’s Dragon’s Den Competition. The awards ceremony was a very formal event and the students presented to each county’s High Sheriff, the National Crime Commissioner, a number of high ranking police officials and Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Gloucestershire, along with around 200 other people. The students did an excellent job with their presentation and not only represented Kirkby College and the local community but the county of Nottinghamshire as a whole.

Students presented along with students from Quarrydale Academy on the Dragon’s Den Project 8. It was a huge success as students from both schools came away with Joint 2nd place in the Adult Lead Category. Students each received a medal and as a team each school received a certificate in a gold frame and a cheque for £250. Students then went on after the awards ceremony to have a delicious lunch in the hotel, go on an open top bus tour of London and finished off with a trip on the London EYE. It was really good to team up with Quarrydale and work together. The students got on really well with the Quarrydale students and new friendships have been formed.
