Dr Dan presents prizes at the Thomas Mills High School Annual Awards Evening

Dr Dan Poulter at Thomas Mills High School Awards Evening with Head teacher Colin Hirst It was a real pleasure for Dan to be invited to Thomas Mills High School in Framlingham for their Annual Awards Evening. Following Head teacher Colin Hirst’s address, he presented over 200 awards to pupils ranging from years 7 to the Upper Sixth Form, before paying tribute to the hard work, dedication and commitment of both Head teacher Colin Hirst and all of the staff and pupils. He was pleased to hear that a number of students are going on to pursue careers in the caring professions, and it was a particular highlight to present a stethoscope as one of the prizes.


Thomas Mills High, which became an academy on 1st June 2011, remains one of the best performing schools in the East of England, and 87 per cent of pupils gained five or more A*- C grades at GCSE level this year. Under the leadership of Head teacher Colin Hirst, the school has gone from strength to strength, and many of its former students have gone on to have very successful careers. Dan would like to commend the students who picked up well deserved awards for their outstanding achievements, and wishes them well for the future.
