Academy Awards

Health Academy Awards

The Manchester Health Academy (MHA) celebrated its annual Academy Awards evening this week and proved an even bigger occasion than it was last year with over 200 pupils being awarded prizes for their hard work, effort and dedication.

The Academy also congratulated 5 students who had 100% attendance in their 4 years at the Academy.  David Cain, Chair of Governors said: "This is a fantastic achievement and I would like to thank students, staff and parents for their continued support."

The Academy also unveiled a new award named "The Jodie Dixon Award for Academic Endeavour" in honour of Jodie, a student who sadly passed away in May.

The award was presented to Jack Norfolk, a year 7 pupil who has complex additional needs and who has spent most of his young life in hospital undergoing significant medical interventions. (pictured above with David Cain)

Jack has worked extremely hard to re-engage with his learning, developing the skills to interact with his peers and making best use of the support offered by all the staff at MHA, enabling him to achieve, and in some cases exceed, his academic targets this year. He embodies the spirit of the award; triumph over adversity, humour, perseverance and the desire to continually strive for the next level of attainment.
