Awards Events

Within Discovery Schools Academy Trust is a huge resource of talent, both within our children and our staff. The Trust organises and hosts an annual awards evening where talent from across our schools is recognised and celebrated. Each school has the opportunity to nominate children and adults in a range of categories, and a panel of expert judges select three short listed candidates who are invited to attend the Discovery Schools Academy Trust "Oscars" night where the winners are announced. It is a very prestigious and glamourous affair which caps off each academic year.  It attracts over 400 parents, children, staff and partners to celebrate our hard work and endeavour.


On Friday 28tJune, children, staff, and parents attended Discovery Schools Academy Trust’s annual awards ceremony.

The Ceremony, now in its sixth year, is designed to recognise the hard work, commitment, innovation and achievement amongst the DSAT family of schools.

This year the event was split into two sections – an early evening ceremony for children and their families, followed by a later staff celebration. The King Power stadium was packed to the gills with excited pupils, waiting to hear if they had won their particular award category – 13 in total - and be presented with a specially designed glass trophy; our runners up were not forgotten, and each received a certificate. The excitement and pride of our winners really shone through, a memory that will stay with them for a lifetime!

The staff celebration was a more informal affair but no less special and amongst the winners were life time achievement awards for Mrs Wright, retiring after 38 years of teaching, 18 of which have been at Kibworth Primary School, and Mrs Hartshorne a member of staff for over 20 years at Danemill.

Paul Stone said “I have been really dazzled this year by the quality of the nominees and am very proud of all the great work going on in our schools. What a fitting end to the term!”

The entire event was only possible thanks to the generous sponsorship of industry leaders and partners, without whose support the event could not take place – Proactive AV, Moir Wade Bespoke Interiors, 3P Learning, Macintyre Hudson, Michelmores, Schools Broadband, Simply Education, Triumph Motorcycles, YMD Boon, Rahmqvist, and Stugress Motor Group.
