For the school year 2013-2014, Howard Junior School was delighted to be voted the "School of the Year" at the inaugural Lynn News Education Awards.
Below is the article published in the Lynn News announcing our success:
Howard Juniors in King’s Lynn took the School of the Year accolade in the inaugural Lynn News Education Awards – a competition that applauded all that is good in our schools.
The presentation evening was held on Wednesday at Lynnsport when a packed audience cheered and applauded colleagues, pupils from neighbouring schools and fellow professionals.
Former headteacher Michael Foot judged three of the awards and he stressed the excellence that exists in many of our institutions, a sentiment echoed by Borough Mayor Elizabeth Watson who spoke glowingly of the event at the end of the evening.
Winner of the Headteacher of the Year prize was Marika Mears from St Martin at Shouldham, a small school that punched above its weight in so many areas.
Other awards included those for the most inspirational teacher, most improved student and outstanding sporting achievement.
All categories were sponsored and their representatives presented trophies and certificates.
King’s Lynn Academy principal Craig Morrison celebrated the work in West Norfolk primary schools before announcing Shouldham’s Researchers class as primary class of the year.
His own school was unlucky to be pipped at the post in several categories – but on the night everyone was a winner.
After interviewing our Headteacher, Mr Hill, the Lynn News published the following report:
A headteacher is over the moon to have won the school of the year title.
Gregory Hill and his team at Howard Junior School in Lynn were thrilled to receive the award during our inaugural education awards on Wednesday.
Speaking shortly after taking to the stage in Lynnsport on Wednesday, Mr Hill said: “Our pupils are hard working and dedicated. They make the school successful.”
The award was judged by Michael Foot, who chose Howard after reading a comment from one of its pupils.
He told the audience at Wednesday’s ceremony: “I opted for the school that was described by one of its youngest pupils as ‘the greatest’.”
