Brainy and intelligent Year 11 and 13 students at Wreake Valley Academy and Sixth Form were celebrating success at an annual awards evening.
Teachers, governors, students and parents came together to recognise the progress of individuals who acheived top grades during the 2015/16 academic year.
Others who attended included the family of Oliver Taylor and Paul Henry, chair of Syston Town Council.
The evening included formal awards for individual subjects, prize giving for the Victor and Victrix Ludorum and the Janet Littlefield Award for outstanding contribution to the visual and performing arts.
The Oliver Taylor Award, which is for the most outstanding Year 11 student, was presented to Tereal Emmanuel.
Mr Pinnock, Principal of Wreake Valley Academy, said: “I’m proud of all the students and their achievements, it’s a testament to their hard work.
“Many of the Year 11 pupils have been welcomed back into the Wreake Valley Sixth Form to study A-levels; Year 13 students are embarking on degree courses at university.
“We wish them all the best of luck in their chosen pathway.”
