Jessica Willmott (Year 9) has been awarded first prize in a national poetry writing competition. The competition was run by Celsian Education. Entrants were asked to write a poem about someone that they admired. Lee Brammer, Managing Director, said “We launched a poetry competition to encourage schools to engage with the students on a different level but also to encourage them to play with the English language and improve literacy”. Lee also said “we received many applications but one poem stood out. We were impressed by the brave words written by Jessica from Sutton Community Academy”.
Jessica was awarded a £100 Red Letter Day voucher as First Prize. You can read Jessica’s poem here.
The photo shows Jessica receiving her award from Joanne Jordan from the Derby office of Celsian Education, Simon Martin, Principal and Marion Howell, Learning Resource Centre Manager, were also on hand to congratulate Jessica.

Staff and students from Sutton Community Academy joined with representatives from the East Midlands Ambulance Service and NatWest bank to present the recently purchased defibrillator machine to Academy Principal Simon Martin last week. It was a real team effort to raise the funds to purchase the machine, which will serve the wider community in the event of an emergency. A huge thank you to everyone who supported this shared focus by either participating in fund raising activities or donating to them. The defibrillator is now situated in the main reception area at the Academy.
This year’s ‘A’ Level Art show was a resounding success. Past, present, and future ‘A’ level students and their families visited the exhibition and toasted the students’ achievements. Members of the local community, business leaders and members of the governing body also attended.
“Art has been well established as a highly successful subject at the Academy, allowing our students to really develop their expressive skills and talents to a high order. This amazing exhibition is a real testimony to that and well worth a visit.” – Simon Martin, Principal.
All the photos are available to view on the Sutton Community Academy Facebook page.
