Students awarded pizza for good

Students have been treated with a slice of pizza and a movie after impressing teachers with their achievements and contributions to school.

Year 7s have been joining in with sports, school and other activities to help promote Pool Academy in the community to gain their silver Citizenship Award.


To celebrating achieving silver more than 40 students were treated to a viewing of The Greatest Showman and given a drink and a slice of pizza.

Last month more than 180 students had achieved their bronze award. Students are now working towards achieving their gold award.

The awards have been created for students in years 7, 8 and 9. They are encouraged to work up from bronze, through silver and up to gold by completing a number of tasks such as representing the school, helping with open evenings or other school productions.

Nick Hamblin, from Pool Academy, is coordinating the awards. He said they help to celebrate students who make a contribution to school and community life.

The Citizenship Awards were launched by MP George Eustice earlier this year.
