The special guest at Ashfield School’s Prize Giving Evening was Winter Olympic hero Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards, pictured with headteacher Richard Vasey, who told tales of how he became an Olympic ski jumper.

The evening celebrated the achievements of the school’s students - from academic attainment, to kindness, helpfulness and succeeding in the face of adversity.

A school spokesman said: “With inspirational stories of success, dance exhibitions from students interspersed throughout the ceremony, and lots of laughter courtesy of Eddie the Eagle’s anecdotes, it was a wonderfully uplifting evening of celebration and a perfect way to round off another school year.”
