Students, parents, governors and staff came together last night to celebrate our student achievements at both GCSE and A level
Our Student Award Evening was held last night and the celebration acknowledged the success of students in both GCSE and A Level courses. Over 300 awards were presented to students for their achievement, progress and contributions to the life of the college and community.
Miss Sally Cox, Principal, noted that the students were part of history; these are the last students to be acknowledged for their achievements as students of Guthlaxton College as we move forward as Wigston College.
Students secured prizes for their talents in the arts, sports and student leadership. The evening began with a musical medley performed by Jessica and Matt Zara. During the interval Lydia Weedon played a beautiful Violin recital with Mr Richard Dacey on the piano.
There were a number of special awards for students including cups for all-round progress and achievement awarded to Chloe Berry who achieved 8 A*s and 2 As at GCSE and Alex Thornhill for achieving 3 A*s and 1 A at A Level; the Rawson Present and Ready Cup was presented to Sam Spencer-Mcfadden and the Rawson Service Cup for School & Community to Sam Harrison. Two cups were presented to the students by the friends and family of former students include the Stephanie Mallett Cup for Speaking & Listening and the Richard Tomlinson Mathematics Cup.
This prestigious evening recognises the immense commitment of the students and acknowledgement was justly given to the parent, carers and teachers for their support and hard work in harnessing and inspiring the excellence of the young people at the college.
We wish all our students every success and encourage them to follow their dreams.
