Recognising Learner Growth and Excellence
We enhance our learners’ positive wellbeing and self-belief by motivating them to reach their full potential through an extensive range of opportunities. We continuously recognise and celebrate learner growth and excellence through College Assemblies, Evenings, College media and news.
Achievement of excellence and success is personal and in our inclusive learning environment we understand there are many measures of success as students move through their education and into their careers and pathways.
