A great celebration event was held at KSA as it hosted its first SENsational Awards event in recognition of the efforts, work and achievements of our students helped by staff in the Academy's Special Educational Needs department.
A total of 43 awards were presented at the special ceremony last Tuesday 13th July to students nominated for a range of achievements.
They were presented with trophies and certificates for their successes shown in lessons, via project work, for being polite and also how they had been on Academy trips during the last academic year.
SEN teacher, Miss Kayleigh-Jay Incles said: "It was a fantastic evening that celebrated all the amazing achievements of our students over the last year at KSA. They were chosen for the trophies in recognition of all they have achieved and we are so amazingly proud of all their efforts."
There was also an inspirational speech delivered on the evening by former KSA Sixth Former, Taylor King who talked about getting into university when faced with diversity and how he had overcome certain obstacles to get to where he is today.
Performances on the night came from the music department's choir 'Sharps and Flats and the school's band.
The event was attended by invited guests of students and parents, staff members from all departments and members of the Senior Leadership Team including KSA principal, Mr Paul Davies.
The event was also supported by Autism Outreach, the Visually impaired Impact team, Prospects, The Prince's Trust and Moulton College.
Miss Incles added:"It was a great success and a really celebration evening which received a really positive response from staff and parents. We now hope to make it an annual event on the Academy's calendar."
