Northampton High School’s annual celebration of achievement took place with a special guest speaker to present the prizes.

Dancer Kenneth Tharp OBE, currently chief executive of The Place, the UK’s leading centre for contemporary dance development, spoke to students, staff and guests.

Mr Tharp spoke about the role of arts in education, saying he believed the curriculum should remain broad and balanced for as long as possible, without students being forced to choose between arts and sciences.

During the ceremony the audience was treated to performances which included ballet, music and drama.
