Sixth former Daniel Jacobs was honoured with the Orwell High Apprentice of the Month accolade after an outstanding performance in planning and organising the school's Rock Night music festival.

Daniel arranged the risk assessments for health and safety, checked with the bands, planned the night, handled ticket sales, communicated with all concerned and ensured a successful night, which raised �400 towards new sound and lighting equipment at the school.

“I am so proud to receive the award,” said 16-year-old Daniel.
