More than 100 young people in Bexley received awards at the council's annual civic celebration of pupil achievement.
All schools in the borough were invited to nominate pupils and they were awarded by Bexley Mayor Cllr Alan Downing last week.
Awards were available in the following categories: outstanding academic achievement, outstanding achievement in arts and sports, outstanding progress and outstanding service to the school community.
Cllr John Fuller, cabinet member for education, said: “All too often people are quick to label or criticise our younger residents. Looking around here tonight, it shows you how many amazing kids we have in the Borough.
“They are a credit to themselves, their families and their schools.”
