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
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

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.
