Awards & Achievements

Celebrating the hard work & effort everyone puts in

We love to celebrate success and recognise the hard work, effort and achievements of all our students, whatever their learning path. We recognise attendance, attitude and our top apprentices, alongside academic achievement and external competitions.

Our fantastic awards evenings and graduation ceremonies honour those achievements, giving our students their rights of passage, their moment in the spotlight and their chance to don those well-earned Cap and Gowns.

College Outstanding Learner Success (COLS)

The jewel in our awards crown, COLS, showcases the talent and achievements of our students and staff as they celebrate their learning journey together. Our themed annual celebration is one of the most anticipated dates of the year.
