Nelson and Colne College honours the high achievers
1:56pm Friday 27th September 2013 in News
STAR students at Nelson and Colne College Sixth Form were honoured at a special ceremony.
The Stars Awards recognised the success of the class of 2013, with the college again achieving high pass rates.
This year the ceremony was held in the college’s own restaurant and bistro, Farringtons.
On arrival, the winners and their families enjoyed a Bucks Fizz reception with canapés and were able to mingle with their former tutors and classmates.
College Principal Amanda Melton welcomed guests to the event before going through the awards to the college’s highest-performing A-level, Vocational and Occupational students.
She said: “We are very sad to see these wonderful young people leaving us, though I am confident in their ability to go on and shine.
“I want to congratulate parents and guardians who have played a major role in their success.
“As a parent myself I appreciate how difficult it can be supporting teenagers through such a period of change, balancing approaching adulthood with the need to commit to study, but you have guided them brilliantly.
“I must also thank the wonderful team of staff at the college who have led these young people to such high achievement.
