Leader of Harlow Council, Russell Perrin, and Harlow Council’s chief executive, Andrew Bramidge, also attended the celebrations.

Councillor Andrew Johnson, chairman of Harlow Council, said: "The Harlow Education Awards recognise the achievements and contributions our young people and educators make to their schools and our town.

"Harlow is going through a great period of change and development which presents thousands of opportunities for jobs, careers and training.

"The town has a very bright future if our young people are given the opportunity to realise their potential and aspirations, and it is thanks to the support of the great educators we have here in the town that they will hopefully be ready to seize those opportunities as they grow."
