Asher, who is featured in the video on our home page, took second place in her latest dance competition.
Asher entered and performed in a dance festival on Sunday 20th May. The day before she had taken part in a full day performing in a show. She entered in the cabaret section, performed a Modern piece and came second.
Considering that this was only Asher's second competition finishing second is a fantastic achievement.

Saturday 16th June was a special night for the school when the actor Adrian Lester presented the school's Principal - Lorraine Dormand with an award from Sparkle Sheffield.
The award for "Most Inspirational Secondary School for Autism Support - 2018" was presented, to Lorraine and other members of school staff, at a glamourous evening ceremony held at St Paul’s Hotel in Sheffield. Sparkle Sheffield is a charity which supports autistic children and young people and their families in the Sheffield area. Actor Adrian is Sparkle Sheffield’s Patron.
This was Sparkle Sheffield's first ever Autism Awards Night. Created to honour people and organisations who have helped to make South Yorkshire a better place by either going the extra mile for someone with autism in very special and different way or by raising autism awareness within the South Yorkshire area.
The school was surprised and delighted to receive this award which is now on display in our reception area.
