Pupils and staff at the Warren School in Whalebone Lane, Chadwell Heath, dressed in their finest gowns and tuxedos for a range of media awards in categories such as best film, best actor and actress and best cameo by a teacher.

The awards night on Tuesday, March 12, was a celebration of the school’s media studies classes and even included videos of acceptance speeches in true Hollywood style.

Mike Todd, head of media studies, said: “It was a great night and unlike anything we’d ever hosted before.”

Pupils even had an encounter with the notorious British paparazzi as student of the month award winner for January Jordan Mann took snaps of the school’s best and brightest.

She said: “The film openings and trailers were brilliant.”

The Performing Arts faculty hosted the evening which showcased the musical and film-making talents of Warren pupils.
