The 2023 Aston Manor Sports Awards evening celebrated some incredible achievements and commitment from our students who once again ensured that we remain one of the most successful sports academies in the West Midlands region.

Our guest speaker Phil Brown, ex GB Olympian 200m and 400m athlete spoke addressed students and staff and spoke of his journey and the commitment required to succeed in all areas of sport if you are to compete professionally.

Students were later presented with their wards by Mr Brown.

Mr Preston, head of sixth form together with Mrs Sweeney, headteacher, also spoke of their admiration of students who continually demonstrate resilience and commitment to their studies, whilst also competing and representing the school

Mrs Sweeney said, “It is important to also applaud and say a massive thank you to our staff at Aston Manor for their continued hard work and support. The teaching team work hard to ensure that our sixth form students don’t miss out on valuable teaching whilst competing by providing additional classes both before and after the school day”. All the students echoed the headteachers comments with a huge cheer and a round of applause.

The sports awards evening was held at Aston Villa football club and included a three course meal and an incredible celebratory cake.
