KESGRAVE High School held its very own Oscar-style award ceremony.

Over 70 pupils took part in the competition, which took place on Friday in the school's purpose-built drama studio.

The performances, which were entirely organised by the students themselves, ranged from monologues and dialogues to drama, comedy and musical theatre.

There were gold medals for the best pupils in each year group, but the most coveted prizes were the Glass trophies engraved and awarded to the best of the entire school.
