Doncaster Award

29th September 2014

We were delighted that Danii Taylor and Luke Hardy were honoured with an award from the Doncaster Freemen this month in acknowledgement of their enthusiasm, energy and commitment to the life of the academy. The ceremony was held at the Mansion House where Danii and Luke were presented with their awards by the Civic Mayor Councillor Pat Haith.

Danii was always relentlessly cheerful and hard-working and was elected to the position of Deputy Head Girl and chair of the Academy Council Fundraising Committee. She organised many charity events which were great fun for students and raised considerable sums of money for various charities and organisations.

Luke is an extremely valued member of the academy community. He played a significant part in the academy achieving the Eco-schools bronze award and in 2014 performed at the Crucible Theatre in Sheffield as part of a National Theatre project.
