Emmerdale's Matthew Wolfenden hands out one of the many awards for students at MC&MA Boys' Presentation Evening

Manchester Creative and Media Academy for Boys (MC&MA Boys) celebrated with VIP guests at its annual presentation evening.

Actor Matthew Wolfenden, who plays David Metcalfe (as Eric Pollard’s son) in national soap Emmerdale, and Lord Mayor of Manchester, Councillor Mark Hackett, handed out prizes at the ceremony held at MC&MA (Boys).

Former Year 11 pupils, who helped to achieve the best results ever seen by the predecessor boys’ school this summer, received awards alongside current high-flying students.

The audience was also entertained by talented MC&MA Boys performers. Bolu Tiete, Mutale Chashi and Nathan Keightley performed instrumentals ‘X Blues 3’ and ‘All Funked Up’ on the bass guitar, rhythm guitar and drums.

The MC&MA (Boys) Steel Band and Street Dance team showcased their talents alongside MC&MA (Boys) Sixth Form student Gift Zama, who performed two tracks called ‘Time Is Now’ and ‘Don’t Hold Me’.

Matthew said: “I think the students are brilliant. A lot of teenagers are unnecessarily given a bad reputation, so to reward them for the good work they do is great.

The Lord Mayor said: “I’m here this evening to say ‘well done’ for improvements made, ‘but we’ve all got to do better’. It’s a chance to recognise success, but to encourage even greater efforts and achievement in the future.”
