Last Year's Awards

In 2020 there were over 150 award nominations and the panel had a difficult job deciding who was most deserving - all the nominees were inspirational and dedicated. The winners, from across Wiltshire were notified at surprise online team meetings, and awards included certificates, theatre vouchers, and prize money for the schools involved.
