Students were praised and received prizes for their educational and sporting successes as well as for service to the school, arts and drama.

The Woodroffe School, situated in Lyme Regis and looking out across the Lym Valley, has an intake of around 1,000 students, with approximately 200 in sixth form.

Woodroffe has close links with Lyme Regis and has been an important part of the community for over 70 years.

Principal Dr Richard Steward said the awards ceremonies are always fantastic opportunities to celebrate the achievements of the students.

Students, including the school jazz band, played at the ceremony and Karen Walker, Andy Brown and Alan Brown were among those to present the prizes to the students.

Students regularly participate in community events in the town.

Sixth formers undertake community service in a range of schools and residential homes, CCF Cadets support the Lyme Regis Remembrance Day Parade and musical groups are involved in concerts and other local events. Members of the community are also encouraged to visit the school to contribute to assemblies and a range of curricular activities.

Dr Richard Steward added: “Senior Awards evening celebrates the hard work and determination of our lower school students.

“Once again staff were spoiled for choice of outstanding nominees and we congratulate the worthy winners.
