More than 100 prizes, cups and shields were presented to Bury St Edmunds students whose achievements reflected their school’s key values.

Awards were handed out across the five year groups at County Upper School’s end of term assembly.

They recognised the school’s three key values of doing your best, getting involved as well as giving service and ‘being that nice person to know’.

On the theme of doing your best, the new Emerson prizes were given to a student in Years 9,10 and 12 who had the best all-round academic achievement.

The prizes were donated by the family of Joan Emerson who attended County Grammar School in the 1930s.

They were presented to Clare Hole, Jess Gottgens and Hannah Curwen.

Another new accolade, the Martlet Award is to be given annually to the Year 13 student who staff and students judge to have best reflected the school’s values.

It was presented to Emily Thomas and the top award for service, the Heilger Cup, was awarded to Skye Brook.

The TEAM prizes are for the students in Years 9,10 and 12 who best show the ‘County spirit’. They went to Hannah Pamplin, Suzie Reid, Christopher Hammond, Jonathan Hammond, Chloe Ashman, George Mavroghenis, Emily Fisher and Christy Williams.

Head Vicky Neale said: “Our whole school assemblies are always special and this one was no exception.

“The student and staff reviews of the year demonstrated just what a busy school we are and the whole occasion was a fitting tribute to another excellent year.”
