Presentation Evening 2020
For the first time ever in the history of Fulston we were unable to invite all of our Year 11 and 13 students, and their parents, to our Presentation Evening because of the Social Distancing guidelines we are following at the moment. Therefore during one busy September evening we invited only Special Award winners and filmed them receiving their awards whilst Mr Bowden read out the citation explaining why they had been chosen to receive that particular award.
The full programme can be found on the Fulston website.
We are very proud of all of our students for their hard work, determination and resilience over the last year and this was a wonderful way to say well done in person to a handful of students who had gone over and above our expectations.
One award had never been shared with so many people but, on this occasion, we couldn’t forget the contribution made by these incredible students.

Unusual as it is to see a list of recipients for the Contribution to the Cultural Life of the School award, it would be both impossible and unfair to present this award in any other way this year. Thanks to this group of year 11 students, October 2019 became an important milestone in the school calendar: our first major celebration of Black History Month. With infectious enthusiasm and a restless spirit, these young men and women planned, organised and curated a temporary exhibition on-site, celebrating the richness of black history- and culture- in a unique and memorable way. Combining art-work, historic exposition, fashion pieces and video installations, the exhibition was visited hundreds of times by staff and students and proved a resounding success, securing press coverage and praise throughout the school community. Having broached an increasingly politicised issue with determination, confidence and pride, these students demonstrated great vision, made us all very proud, and together opened a new chapter in the cultural life of the school.
