We are incredibly proud to announce that our awarding-winning Head of Performing Arts, Mr Robinson has been nominated for a Pride of Reading Award. He has been put forward for the coveted Cultural Contribution crown by one of our JMA parents.
Mrs Ford who has two daughters at JMA in Years 7 and 10 nominated Mr Robinson saying, "His subject and our children are his life. Last year they performed in 35-plus shows and won numerous awards. Tommy is an amazing teacher who brings out in these children things that they never knew possible. They are one amazing family both on and off the stage, and this is all down to him".
On being told of his Pride of Reading nomination, Mr Robinson said he felt amazed and humbled. “It’s been a mad year for us in the performing arts with some astonishing achievements, however, I really think this tops it! I have worked in Reading for over 13 years and, in that time, have seen the arts blossom and grow. To have been a small part of that makes me proud, and to be recognised with this nomination, even prouder.”
