Colonel Frank Seely Academy are proud to announce that Richard Whitehead, former pupil, friend of the school and Team GB Paralympian Gold medalist will be the guest speaker at the school’s GCSE and A-level awards evening this year. The evening on Wednesday 11th December at the William Lee Sixth Form Centre is always a great success, but we are sure that Richard’s speech will be a fantastic motivation for success to all present.
The awards evening is a celebration for last year’s Year 11 and Year 13 students who have been nominated by teaching staff for excelling in various subjects. Certificates and prizes will be handed out at the event.
The school has also been raising money for Richard’s chosen charities, Sarcoma UK and Scope, and raised £446.00 from sponsorship money from staff taking part in the Robin Hood Marathon and donations.
