Inspirational teachers, talented students and awesome support staff packed into Alexandra Palace for this year’s highly anticipated Outstanding for All awards.
The Haringey Council awards, now in their sixth year, celebrate achievement in education across the borough, with categories recognising a host of roles and subjects.
The awards were hosted for the second year running by TV star and Haringey resident Jacqueline Shepherd, who was joined on stage by students Billie Krish and Jakaya Jenkins.
Award presenters included a very special sporting star and Spurs fans were delighted when goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga took to the stage to present the Achievement in Sport Award.
Everyone nominated for an award will also receive tickets to an upcoming Spurs game.
Other award presenters included the Mayor of Haringey Cllr Gina Adamou; representatives from the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London; Haringey Sixth Form College; Ada National College of Digital Skills and Haringey Education Partnership.
“What an honour to return to Alexandra Palace to host these awards. I was very lucky to be joined by some brilliant co-hosts and once again I was blown away by the stories of achievement from Haringey’s young people.”
Guests were also treated to spectacular performances from some of the borough’s most talented young stars, including St Paul’s and All Hallows’ Junior School choir; St Mary’s CofE Primary School Dance Group, Haringey Vox, Haringey Senior Musicians’ Guitar Group and Park View School Dance Group.
Mayor of Haringey Cllr Gina Adamou, who presented the Cllr Egan Achievement award, said:

Events like this remind us why we are so proud of our schools in Haringey and we heard some truly inspirational stories.
