Eastbury's annual awards evening recognised the academic achievements, creativity and community endeavours of its pupils with young people rewarded for their hard work in a range of subjects.

David Dickson, executive headteacher, said: "Thank you to everyone involved. It was brilliant to see all the happy students and families, who were obviously so proud of their achievements.
"I absolutely loved the way in which the students spoke about the achievements within the school and about their peers. "The slickness with interludes of music and oracy was well judged and timed. The inclusion of alumni was hugely inspirational and it was great to have discussions with them afterwards."
Former students Princess Adeosun, Daniel Anandie and Oribi Davies offered inspiring words to the next generation during the evening.
School governor Kevin Medcalf said: "It was very enjoyable."
