We have been crowned Secondary School of the Year! 

Sir John Thursby has been crowned Lancashire Secondary School of the Year. The award was made in recognition of the schools success in exams, the ethos of the school and how we prepare young people for the world of work, further education and apprenticeships.

The organisers said they had had more nominations this year than ever before so be a finalist is an enormous achievement. The awards were in Preston and we waited anxiously to find out if we would win.

When our school was announced as the winner, music played, applause rang around the room and lightbulbs from the photographer flashed.

We are delighted to be Lancashire Secondary School of the Year because it rewards all the hard work for so many people but we are striving for better every year.
