Celebrating Success

Hayes + Storr have been celebrating success with Alderman Peel High School in Wells. On the 12th July students were recognised for their efforts and talents across all subjects at a dedicated academic awards evening with Hayes + Storr sponsoring business and creative writing awards. The aim of the event was to recognise and reward students for their academic achievements, motivating them to maximise their potential to achieve the best they can.

The evening held at the Holkham Estate was brought to life with music performed by the very accomplished school Function Band made up of APHS teachers, and motivational words spoken by guest of honour Alex Staniforth. Alex’s book ‘Icefall’, endorsed by Bear Grylls, tells the true story of his journey through adversity to conquer Mount Everest. Alex suffered many setbacks in his childhood which he believes ultimately drove him to succeed – now he inspires others to build resilience, and overcome their own ‘Everest in life’.

A fun and memorable evening was had by all. A big thank you to APHS who made us very proud to be part of such an aspirational event for young people.
