Students from Shrewsbury Sixth Form College were congratulated for their outstanding achievements at a special awards ceremony last week.

The 2017 Celebrating Achievement Awards were held at English Bridge campus and students celebrated their wide-ranging talents, as well as their academic and scholastic achievements. 20 awards were given for academic achievement, enrichment and volunteering and a further 51 students were highly commended. 

The evening also provided an opportunity for staff, students and invited guests to witness the vast array of student gifts and skills, through a selection of performance pieces a spectacular soprano solo, a kickboxing demonstration, a presentation on Debate-Ed and the Young Engineering Scheme.

Lyn Surgeon, Interim Principal and Chief Executive Officer of the Shrewsbury Colleges Group, said:
