Celebrations at our 2023 Staff Awards

Archway’s annual Staff Awards event took place recently to celebrate the incredible dedication and achievements of staff across our Trust.

Over 400 people attended including staff from across our trust, governors, trustees, and our sponsors.

The event was superbly hosted by our very own Josh Mather (Senior Academy Manager, Bluecoat Beechdale).

Becky Downie joined us as a guest speaker. Becky is a British artistic gymnast who grew up in Nottingham and has competed nationally and internationally. Becky spoke about her resilience in her school days, life during her many achievements and opened the room to a Q&A session.

Earlier in the year, staff were given the opportunity to nominate their colleagues for an award. Students were also involved by putting forward nominations for the ‘Inspirational Staff Award’. In total we received almost 3,000 votes.

For each award, a short video clip was shown which summarised why each person had been shortlisted. We watched the video clips in awe and anticipation before each winner was announced followed by many cheers and appreciation to those winners themselves!

Sian Hampton, Archway’s CEO, said: “Our Staff Awards always make me so proud of our Archway family. Huge congratulations to all our nominees and winners, who all deserve this recognition.

“Receiving an incredible 3,000 nominations is testament to the way we work together and value each other as we all work towards providing the very best educational experience for our students.”

Thank you to our sponsors: Connex Education, GL Assessment, Browne Jacobson, LINK3 Recruitment, Go4Schools, Polycopy, CODA Education and AR Signs.

Also, a huge thank you to Josh Mather for organising the event and to Amanda Bertram, Sharon Lang, Amelia Wedge, Theresa Bailey, Jane Hodgson, Liza Needham and Tiffany Bieuu for all their help and support in making the night a success.
