Undeterred by the cold wintery weather, Wakefield College students gathered at the Castleford Campus on Friday evening for the Awards Ceremony, the College’s annual celebration of its students’ hard work, dedication and achievements.

Senior College staff were joined by Governors, sponsors, friends and families for the glittering event where a total of 39 awards were handed out to learners of all ages and abilities.

Proceedings were opened by College Principal Sam Wright who congratulated students on their awards. Sam was joined by the College’s Chair of Governors, Kevin Henry, who presented the award winners with their certificates and prize money.

Addressing the gathering, College Principal Sam Wright said: “I’m justifiably proud of each and every one of you and of your achievements. My congratulations go to each of you, along with my best wishes for your future success and happiness.”

Student success was recognised by the presentation of Student of the Year awards relating to the various curriculum areas and prizes such as Apprentice of the Year and Employer of the Year were also handed out.
