The college held an award ceremony to congratulate the three students who collected the most:

Mike said: “It is wonderful to see how our students take advantage of all the enrichment activities on offer. We always stress how important it is for students to build up their personal statements to  gain the university place, apprenticeship or employment of their choice. These three students are exceptional, but we look forward to celebrating many more achievements throughout next year.”
