The winners of the inaugural Shrewsbury School Academy Awards were announced last week in a glamorous award ceremony.

Hosted by Deputy Head of Co-Curricular Peter Middleton, the award ceremony recognised our pupils’ hard work during the One Day Film Festival weekend in Lent Term, where they were able to act, edit and produce some impressive short films.

From Western-inspired films to Tarantino-esque crime capers, there certainly was something for everyone to enjoy.

Deputy Head of Co-Curricular, Peter Middleton, said “The pupils were brilliant during the One Day Film School weekend and produced films that impressed the judges for their creativity, imagination and flair.  The inaugural Awards Night presentation was great fun and provided a bit of glitz and glamour as we revealed the winners in the 13 categories.  Well done to all the winners and likewise all who took part!”
