Student Awards 2017

We hold an annual awards ceremony to celebrate our students’ excellent achievements. In 2017, the awards were held in conjunction with Barnsley College.  A Level student Maddie Jewitt won the cross-college Achievement Award for her dedication to her studies and Adam Pye scooped the Equality and Diversity Champion Award for his work with the college’s Sexuality and Gender Acceptance (SAGA) Society.  Adam was also presented with the Principal’s Award, given to one student selected from all the award winner on the night.
