Celebrating Determination to Achieve

Formby High School held its annual Presentation Evening awards ceremony at the Floral Hall in Southport to celebrate our students’ many and varied achievements.  GCSE certificates were presented to last year’s Year 11 students who performed incredibly in the face of probably the hardest exam series in many years.  In addition, 21 special achievement awards were presented to winners across all years for outstanding academic and other achievements, including the performing arts, citizenship and teamwork.  Our guest of honour was Formby resident Alex Krol, a former Royal Marines Commando who overcame a severe spinal injury to win Gold at the Invictus Games in Toronto this year.  That was Alex’s second Invictus Gold, having also picked up the award in Orlando in 2016.  Alex delivered a truly inspirational address about the importance of resilience, perseverance and belief in setting goals and achieving them.  A huge congratulations to all our award and certificate winners, and thank you to their parents, the staff and school community members who celebrated their successes with us last night.
