CTA Pupils receive £1000 Award!
We are absolutely thrilled to announce that two of our outstanding Sixth Form pupils, Daniel and Scarlett, have been honoured with the prestigious Burntwood Town Council Student Award, a tribute to the remarkable Stephen Sutton MBE.
This award, started in 2015 to honour Stephen’s legacy, was reintroduced in 2023 after a temporary pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic and aims to give young people aged 11-19 a practical helping hand to encourage them to achieve greater heights. Two annual awards of £1000 each were up for grabs, and we are proud to announce that both Dan and Scarlett were chosen for their exceptional talents.
Daniel, Year 13, has been presented this award to contribute to purchasing equipment and repairs for his Powerchair Football Team. His passion for football extends beyond the field, as he aspires to pursue a career in football journalism. Dan shared his long-term goals with Cllr Kathy Coe MBE and Cllr Paul Taylor during their visit to Chase Terrace Academy, leaving them extremely impressed with his aspirations and dedication.
Scarlett, also in Year 12, has been recognised for her outstanding artwork. She showcased her passion for art and presented examples of her current projects to the councillors. Scarlett plans to use the award money to purchase new art supplies, including her favourite graphite pencils. Moreover, she has been invited to create artwork for the newly purchased Community building that the Burntwood Town Council hopes to open soon, making her the first artist to be featured after the renovation!
We are immensely proud of Dan and Scarlett for their achievements, and we extend our gratitude to Cllr Kathy Coe MBE and Cllr Paul Taylor for visiting us to celebrate their success. Let’s continue to support and encourage the incredible talents within our school community!
