The annual Wakefield College 14-16 Awards took place last week and saw a great number of awards for students at local schools.

The event acknowledges and celebrates the successes of 14-16 learners from local secondary schools who attend College on full or part-time vocational pathways. This year’s award winners were:

14-16 Student of the Year in Construction – Logan Benn (Castleford Academy)
14-16 Student of the Year in Hair and Beauty – Ele Turgoose (Kettlethorpe High School) 
14-16 Student of the Year in Engineering & Motor Vehicle  – Maciej Uniatowski (Castleford Academy)

14-16 Recognition Award – Lauren Harvey (Castleford Academy) 
14-16 Principal’s Award (Joint Winners) – Kelsey Greening (St Thomas a Becket Catholic School) and Ashley Wicks (Minsthorpe Community College)  
14-16 Student of the Year – Blaize-Marie Myers (Home Educated)

James Pennington, Partnership Manager at Wakefield College said: “We have had another excellent year working with partner schools and once again have some remarkable success stories to celebrate.

“We are delighted to offer students, who have a keen interest in a vocational area, the opportunity to either come to College a year early, or combine vocational learning with their GCSEs in school.

“We are immensely proud of all our students and this event is important as it allows us to celebrate the achievements of a group of students, many of whom have not previously been recognised for achieving in education.

“This is just the start for them and I look forward to seeing many of them back studying with us next year.”
