Star Students Shine at College Awards

14 December 2017 | College News, Hospitality & Catering

City College celebrated its students’ successes at a glittering awards ceremony on Tuesday 12 December.

The tables were sprinkled with gold coins, the Christmas lights were twinkling, and the stage was set to celebrate the Student of the Term awards – recognising students who go ‘above and beyond’ to make a positive contribution to their course, the College or the local community.

Phil Davies, Principal and Chief Executive of City College, said: “The Student of the Term awards ceremony is an important termly event for the College and is one of the highlights of our academic year. It provides us with an opportunity to celebrate and acknowledge some of the remarkable achievements of our students and recognise publicly their hard work and commitment.

“These students, some of whom have had to overcome additional barriers, have all achieved fantastic results and deserve to be congratulated. The staff at the College are enormously proud of their accomplishments and the way in which they reflect so well on the City. It really is an honour to celebrate the outstanding qualities and achievements of our students and to share in their successes with family, friends and tutors.”

Full of festive cheer, the celebration honouring the 16 winners was held in PL1, the College’s popular training restaurant, with a special menu prepared and served by hospitality and catering students.

The awards honoured students across the full range of courses that the College offers. Those interested in finding out more can do so at City College’s Adult Education Open Evening on Wednesday 3 January, 4.30pm to 6.30pm at Kings Road. Visit or call 01752 305300 for more information.
