A Wembley school is celebrating after being recognised for its motivational work with African-Caribbean students.

Preston Manor All-Through Foundation School in Carlton Avenue East attended the African Caribbean Education Services (ACES) eighth anniversary awards ceremony, ‘Equipped to Achieve.’

ACES, a London not-for-profit organisation, held the ceremony to recognise the work of individuals and groups who help equip young people with positive cultural identity and the skills needed to succeed in education, employment and enterprise.

Doniah Narh, the founder of ACES, has worked with Preston Manor students for almost seven years.

And at the October 4 ceremony at Central Hall, Westminster, Angel Panford, a year 11 student, had the honour of receiving the school’s award for ‘Outstanding contribution to ACES.’

“Working with ACES has helped me to be proud of my heritage,” said Angel.

Jeziah Sinclair, a former Preston Manor student, spoke during the ceremony on the positive impact ACES had on his academic journey through to university.

He said: “I am grateful to Preston Manor for allowing myself and other students the opportunity to work with ACES during our time at school.”

Andy Ward, the school’s assistant headteacher, said: “ACES served to inspire and motivate all of those who participated.

“To this aim, any activity that strengthens a child’s level of self respect can only be a good lesson learnt.

Mr Ward described ACES as being firmly committed to celebrating the achievements of past and present African-Caribbean students.
