Mrs Hughes win National Award!

Students and staff at Salford City Academy are celebrating after one exceptional staff member, Mrs G Hughes, won the Outstanding Achievement Award at this year’s PA of the Year Awards.

Now in its ninth year, the annual awards celebrate the standout successes and notable achievements of PAs, EAs and Office Managers across the country. More than 600 entries were submitted for this year’s prestigious awards, with the esteemed panel of judges having the difficult task of selecting 20 finalists and only four winners. During a special online ceremony, finalists virtually joined their colleagues to celebrate their hard work and honour the winners.

In taking home the Outstanding Achievement Award, Mrs Hughes confirmed her status as an unfaltering champion of the profession, who stood out to the judges for her incredible commitment and the level of care she puts into her daily work at Salford City Academy. Having joined the academy two years ago, Mrs Hughes has made herself an invaluable addition to the school community and always goes above and beyond to support students and staff.

In his nomination for Mrs Hughes, Mr Leader, Vice Principal at Salford City Academy, said:

“Mrs Hughes has been an outstanding PA since she arrived at the academy. She is always positive, forward thinking, and proactive. There is never a job too big or too small. She will compete tasks without trouble or even people asking as she is always 'ahead of the game'. She is a true inspiration to all students and staff at the academy.”

Speaking of her win, Mrs Hughes, said:

“I was absolutely thrilled to have just been nominated for this year’s awards so finding out that I am one of the winners is an honour. I always strive to do my job to the best of my ability and make a positive difference for everyone at the school so it’s incredibly rewarding to see my hard work being appreciated in this way.”

Ms Haselden, Principal at Salford City Academy, said:

Congratulations to Mrs Hughes on her fantastic win. Her attention-to-detail and the commitment she shows to her work inspires all of us at the academy on a daily basis. Given the challenges we’ve all faced in recent months, it is particularly pleasing to see Mrs Hughes receive this kind of national recognition which we all agree is thoroughly well-deserved.”
