Pixl Student Celebration Westminister

Leigh UTC students were nominated for awards at the Pixl  Student Celebration held at Central Hall, Storey’s Gate, in Westminster.

Students and parents spent an evening celebrating their academic achievements, gained at the UTC. The night involved performances from students and with guest speaker Johanna Shand.

Joanna Rowsell Shand (MBE) is an English cyclist on the Great Britain Cycling Team who competes on track and road.

She shared her journey of successes to date, which include the gold medals won in the women’s team pursuit at four editions of the World Championships (2008, 2009, 2012 and 2014) and the gold medal in the same discipline at the 2012 London Olympics and the 2016 games in Rio, as well as the individual pursuit at the 2014 World Championship.

We are extremely proud of Nester Hakata, Michael Folley and Jack Murphy for progressing so well since joining the UTC, and the opportunity for them to celebrate with students from across the country.
