A multi-academy trust in South Gloucestershire is seeking sponsors for an upcoming day of celebration and awards to mark students’ successes.

Castle School Education Trust (CSET), which comprises three primary schools and four secondary schools, is holding an award ceremony at University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) Business School on Monday 11 July and local businesses are being invited to support the event.

With packages ranging from £30 for an award sponsor to £250 for a catering sponsor, it is hoped that local organisations step forward to help make the day as special as possible.

Students across all seven CSET schools will be nominated in the categories, kindness; sporting achievement; creativity; outstanding individual progress; green planet; outstanding team of the year; contribution to the wider community; resilience; unsung hero; and living school values.

Each nominee will be invited to the event along with two family members. There will also be performances from students and refreshments for all.

Organiser of the event, Clare Bradford, Deputy Director of Inclusion and Safeguarding, said: “We are always so inspired by the creativeness, aptitude, resilience and pride that our CSET pupils show from the

wide-eyed four-year-olds to the mature 18-year-olds ready to set foot in the world. Therefore, we have decided that now is the time to truly celebrate and recognise them.

“This July we will hold our first ever Trust-wide CSET celebration, where we will recognise our pupils and their contribution to school life and the wider community. Academic success is important, but so are

pupils’ attitudes and approach to life.

“We are hoping to find sponsors to help us make this event as fantastic as possible for our young people and their families.

UWE Bristol have kindly offered to host the event for us and we look forward to working with other partners to make this a huge celebration for our Trust.”

CSET encompasses Downend School, Mangotsfield School, Marlwood School, The Castle School, Charfield Primary School, Lyde Green Primary School and Severn Beach Primary School.
