The Award Winners with Bobby Seagull

The 2019 Above and Beyond Awards Ceremony took place on February 11th at the International Conference Centre, Birmingham.

The Above and Beyond Awards celebrate parents, teachers, support staff and other professionals in the UK who go ‘above and beyond’ to help exceptional young people within the UK achieve their high learning potential. They also celebrate the achievements of children and young people in the UK, ‘above and beyond’ expectation for their age, who help in the wider community or are overcoming challenges in order to excel.

We had a fantastic day at the inaugural Above and Beyond Awards. Hosted by Bobby Seagull, we were privileged to welcome the shortlisted nominees for afternoon tea and a presentation of awards and certificates to our amazing winners and runners-up. Thank you to everyone who attended this celebration for children with high learning potential and the people who help support them.
