Cirencester Sixth Form College Annual Award Ceremony 2017

Over 200 guests including past and current students, employers, sponsors, staff, family and friends attended Cirencester Sixth Form College’s 26th Awards Ceremony held on Monday 18th December, when more than 70 former students received awards for outstanding achievement and individual contribution to the College and the community.  Capital Workforce Management Solutions won the Employer Award for their support of the College’s Career Ready programme and Derive Logic won the employer award for their contribution to the apprenticeship programme.
In his welcome, Principal Jim Grant, showed his appreciation to the students and staff for another magnificent year of outstanding results and achievements whilst acknowledging the support of their families to achieve the best possible outcomes.


Rory Thomas-Lawson, Desmond Dakura and Sam Judd captivated the guests with their own jazz composition and Maria Schoeps accompanied by Sam Judd on guitar impressed the audience with her exceptional rendition of Valerie by the Zutons.

This year, writer, journalist, broadcaster and former student, Clover Stroud, was the guest speaker. Clover, who joined the College at the very beginning in 1991/92, studying Politics, History and English, inspired the award winners with  her journey from College to the highly successful career that she has now.  Generously accrediting the College as the place where she learnt who she could be, what she could learn and where that learning could take her, she recounted some of her adventures travelling the world. She gave great advice to the Award winners, telling them not to worry about mistakes, not to let  them hold you back,  to be kind to people. take an interest in others and not to waste their time but to make sure they seized opportunities and challenged themselves.  She ended by emphasising that their destiny was in their own hands.

Students, staff and families all agreed it had been a wonderful day celebrating the many student successes.
