Executive principal Anna Martin said: “As a whole staff we are so proud of our students’ resilience and determination to succeed in their studies, sports and extra-curricular work.

“Despite this being a challenging year for many, our students have shone through with a determination to be the best they can be and thoroughly deserve recognition for their efforts.

“At least 548 students received at least one nomination for an award, that’s 93% of the student body ­— an amazing indication of the ambition and determination among Magnus students, developing talents to benefit not just themselves, but also for those in our wider community.

“We would like to thank everyone who supported us to celebrate the achievements of our fantastic students this year.”
