Each Spring we give students who have displayed the most effort and progress over the past year, or during their time at KES, a Pinnacle award.
The awards are given out in July at our prestigious awards ceremony, held at the Cliffs Pavilion in Southend.
It is a glittering occasion, giving many students the opportunity to appear on a professional stage, both in the performances given by our performing arts and music students during the first half, and receiving awards during the second half.
Awards are given to students in the following categories:
- Student Leadership Awards (Prefects and outgoing and incoming Student Leadership Team)
- Subject Awards for Effort and Progress (two students, boy and girl, per year group, per subject)
- End of Year House Awards
- Attendance Awards
- Sponsored Awards
Students are given prizes and presented with trophies by a special guest.
Parents/carers of children who are performing in the show, receiving an award, or being invested as a prefect, are invited to attend the event.
