Schools across Kirkby will be holding special ceremonies today (Tuesday 29 June) to celebrate the achievements of pupils.
The Kirkby Collaborative of Schools Celebration of Achievement will take place across 15 schools, in what is the eighth annual year of the awards.
The Kirkby Collaborative, which provides educational opportunities to over 5,000 children in Kirkby, is the family of fourteen schools that work in partnership in the town.
Bluebell Park School will also be taking part in the celebrations this year.
Although a single ceremony could not be staged this year due to the ongoing pandemic the schools will host individual celebrations to mark the achievements.
