East Norfolk Sixth Form College students collect awards

HUNDREDS of last year’s students at East Norfolk Sixth Form College have been back to collect their certificates and awards at the annual Presentation Evening.

Guest of honour was the Mayor of Great Yarmouth, Michael Jeal, who was kept very busy congratulating so many high achievers.

There were no fewer than 197 special certificates awarded to the Norfolk scholars for examination excellence in a year in which more than 400 of the college’s students have gone on to universities all over Britain.

Principal Laurie Poulson congratulated the students for producing the college’s best-ever set of results and maintaining the area’s proud record of being placed in the country’s top 20 colleges for average A-level points score for the 11th consecutive year.

The mayor praised the students for their achievements and encouraged them to aim for the very best in their higher education and their careers, and hopefully to bring their skills back to join in the future prosperity of the borough of Great Yarmouth.

The top prizes, supported by Great Yarmouth Grammar School Trust, were awarded to:

Foundation Scholars, three students with highest ECAS points other than winner of Bruce Halsey Prize: Jessie Gardner (Natural Sciences, UEA), Leonie Smith (Architecture, Newcastle University), and Gemma Goreham (English Literature and History, UEA).
