Prize Giving 2024

On Thursday 21st March De Lisle College held its annual Prize Giving Ceremony at Loughborough Town Hall. The event was attended by over 400 parents, carers, staff and special guests, who gathered to celebrate the achievements of over 150 students.

We were delighted to welcome our guest speaker, Dr Tom Breed, a former De Lisle Student, to share his experiences since leaving De Lisle College and to offer his valuable advice to our students. Our fantastic Show Cast and Ensemble were also in attendance, opening and closing the ceremony as well as performing a superb rendition of ‘Human Again’ from this year’s school performance, Beauty and the Beast.

The number of students recognised, and the breadth of the awards they were being recognised for, is testament to their hard work and dedication. Students in all year groups were recognised for their progress and effort across their subjects, with students in years 11 and 13 recognised individually for their contribution to particular subjects. Beyond the classroom, students were also celebrated for their commitment in an array of extra-curricular activities, with over 50 students being given headteachers ties in recognition of their contribution to sport, music, drama and the library.

This year saw the addition of a new set of awards, the #DeLisleLoves awards. These prestigious awards reflect the school’s mission statement and were awarded to students who exemplify our school values on a daily basis.

Back at school, we recently held a celebration assembly, where all of our prize winners were able to collect their certificates. We are extremely proud of all our award winners and were delighted to be able to celebrate all of their achievements with them.
