College students enjoy success at King's Lynn celebration evening
Hundreds of college students have been enjoying their success during an event held in Lynn.
The College of West Anglia’s annual celebration evening took place at the town’s Tennyson Avenue campus on Tuesday.
The event recognised more than 350 students who had achieved either an iExcel award, for high grades in a level 2 course or GCSE maths, English or science, or Norfolk Scholar status for A-level and equivalent qualifications.
Assistant principal Andrew Gedge said: “Tonight provided us with the opportunity for students, teachers and parents alike to celebrate their endeavours, hard work and performance.
“We believe that all of our students should aim high and achieve higher and that is exactly what they have demonstrated.”
The evening’s guest speaker was Jermaine Jackman, a singer, songwriter and political activist who is best known for winning the television talent show, The Voice, in 2014.
He said: “The college continues to recognise, promote and shine a light on those students who are achieving great things.
It’s extremely important we recognise the hard-working young students who are going that extra mile and achieving greatness.”
