Academy Transformation Trust (ATT) is a not for profit trust working with primary and secondary academies and further education providers in the Midlands, East of England and South East.

Taking place on Thursday 8th December at Birmingham Council House, the Pupil Awards will bring together pupils, staff and parents from The Trust’s 21 academies to recognise and celebrate the pupils’ achievements.

Nominated by their principals, pupils from both primary and secondary academies will be awarded across 10 categories, including academic excellence, character, outstanding team, overcoming adversity, and leadership.

The event will be hosted by street dancers, Perri Kiely and Jordan Banjo from Britain’s Got Talent 2009 winners, Diversity. Jordan Banjo is currently also a contestant on ITV’s I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here.

Ian Cleland, CEO and founder of Academy Transformation Trust, said: “The Pupil Awards enable us to recognise our pupils for all their talents and achievements and give them the recognition they deserve.

“In the award nominations, we saw many examples of the courage, ambition and positive attitudes which have driven our pupils to achieve the very best they can. We’re looking forward to bringing all our academies together and sharing their success stories with everyone.”

Jordan and Perri from Diversity, added: “From creativity to academic excellence, right through to sport and transformational progress, it’s an honour to recognise and reward pupils across a variety of categories. The pupils inspired us last year with their achievements and we can’t wait to hear all about what they’ve accomplished this year!”
