On Thursday 11th December, we hosted our annual 'Celebration of Success' awards, recognising and rewarding student achievement over the last academic year. It was an entertaining evening, with speeches by our Principal Craig Morrison, Acting Head of School Terri Broughton as well as guest speakers Arlene Clark, our Chair of Governors and Henry Bellingham MP.
Well done to all our worthy prize winners.
We had a very successful evening at the 2nd Annual Lynn News Education Awards on Wednesday evening, 19th November, scooping the award for Secondary School of the Year and our Principal, Craig Morrison was named Headteacher of the Year!
We are also proud of Lorna Hutchison, Catering Manager at KLA, who was shortlisted for the Support Staff of the Year award and was named as runner-up.
These awards highlight the huge effort by staff and students on our journey to good and beyond and we thank all parents and students who nominated us. The comments made clearly swayed former Headteacher Michael Foot, who judged the category, to honour us – the competition was stiff; Terrington St Clement and Downham Market Academy were runners up.
Our Principal, Craig Morrison, was rewarded for all of his determination in leading the change at KLA with the award for Headteacher of the Year, beating Andy Johnson of Springwood High and Jon Goodchild of Smithdon. All would have been worthy winners but again, thank you to all who nominated Mr Morrison for your kind words of support. Evidently these again persuaded judge Michael Foot to select Mr Morrison for the honour.
KLA also sponsored the award for Most Inspirational Primary School Teacher. This prize was won by Jill Fysh of Norman Primary School in Northwold. We are proud to support the work of the Primary schools in this way.
