This event was led by the Hayle Academy student leadership team with performances from the music department. The evening was all about our current and past students; their individual gifts, talents, accomplishments and efforts to achieve their personal best.
We were pleased to welcome Mr Clive Polkinghorne, Mayor of Hayle, and his wife and honoured to have him perform as guest speaker and presenter of the Subject and Special Awards to our talented students.

The Mayor congratulated all the award recipients, the school, its staff and the parents and guardians for their sacrifices in support of these students.
It was an evening of many emotions as students were reunited with their teachers (Including Mrs Dawn Davies – our Language Teacher, now retired, who came all the way from Yorkshire to
