Stars shine in annual Sherbies celebration

Sherburn High recently hosted their annual celebration evenings, informally referred to as the Sherbies.

Held over four evenings, one for each house, the Sherbies celebrate the success of students who have excelled in subject areas or have made a significant contribution to their House community.

Ruth Marsh, assistant headteacher said: “These evenings are a chance for us to pay tribute to the students that go over and above what is expected of them; they make teaching an amazing job and an incredible privilege.

“The young people nominated for an award are our leaders of the future and I think we can be hopeful and positive if these students are our society’s future.”

Just to be nominated for an award is a great achievement as students are selected from over 200 other students from Years 7 through to Year 13.

The evenings are very student focused with student hosts and comperes were chosen from each house for the difficult task of addressing the audience of staff, parents and peers.

A school spokesman said: “They rose to the challenge and performed brilliantly.

“Throughout the evenings we were privileged to hear musical performances from our talented students who played piano and drums and sang for us.

“The four evenings were a wonderful end to the academic year.”
