When the Bristol Post announced they would be running the City’s first ever Education Awards this year, St Brendan’s jumped at the opportunity to sponsor the event!

The awards are designed to recognise those people across Bristol in primary and secondary schools, who really go above and beyond to have a positive impact upon the lives of young people. As the only Sixth Form College in the region, and home to over 1800 students, we had to be involved!

After months of voting, the awards evening arrived this week and teachers, support staff, principals, governors and the city’s key influencers were all invited. The event was held at the Bristol Hotel and saw a range of stand-out teachers, support assistants and head teachers receiving awards for their contribution to education. Presented by ‘I’m a Celebrity…’ star and local comedian Joel Dommett, the evening was enjoyed by all.

St Brendan’s Principal Michael Jaffrain was proud to present the award to Secondary Teacher of the Year – Deborah Morgan of Clevedon School.

The evening was perfectly brought to a close by the very talented St Brendan’s choir. Accompanied by three Music Performing students, the group performed ‘Man in the Mirror’ to a captivated audience.
