School productions, prom night, exam results day, there are many moments through the school year for teachers and pupils to take a step back and appreciate their lot.
The Gazette’s Education Awards hope to provide another moment for schools to take stock of just.
The awards celebrate primary and secondary education across the Fylde coast, from individual achievements to whole school efforts and those quietly working behind the scenes to make an impact on the lives of countless young people.
Perhaps the most coveted prizes are the primary and secondary schools of the year awards.
These prestigious awards recognise the contributions schools make not only to their pupils’ personal and academic achievements but also to the community and its work with other schools to raise standards and inspire others.
Last year’s proud winner in the secondary school category was ‘Team Millfield’, Millfield Science and Performing Arts College, on Belvedere Road, Thornton.
The previous year Millfield won the School Lifestyle Award.
Headteacher Sean Bullen said: “We were delighted to win the award last year.
“We were already very pleased with our work but this added recognition gave us an even greater sense of pride at Team Millfield.
“It is always great to be able to recognise the work of individuals or groups who have done particularly well.”
Mr Bullen said the school is now striving for more awards to recognise the variety of work it does.
