More than 400 pupils from 14 schools attended the second annual Community Awards event at St Michael's Church in Beccles on Wednesday evening.
Pupils were presented with Community Awards for a variety of reasons, including academic achievements, overcoming personal difficulties and for having good relations with other students.
Jeremy Rowe, headteacher at the Sir John Leman High School, said: “The awards evening is a symbol of the fact that we are all working together, to ensure that our students have the best possible education.
