This week Cirencester Sixth Form College hosted an evening of celebration to recognise the outstanding achievements of students and staff at the annual Awards Ceremony.
The Awards evening held on 17th December was attended by over 200 guests including past and current students, employers, sponsors, staff, family and friends. Over 60 former students received awards for their own individual successes as well as their contribution to the College and the community.
St James’s Place Wealth Management won the Employer Award for their support of the College’s Career Ready programme and Pic PR won the Employer Award for their contribution to the apprenticeship programme.
Top achiever Juliet Biard was awarded ‘The Cirencester Grammar School Memorial Trust Prize for Academic Excellence’ for gaining four A stars in her Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry A-levels. Juliet achieved the highest overall score in her year group for every subject she studied and is now studying Natural Sciences at Cambridge University.
In their welcome, Principal Jim Grant, and Chair of Governors Peter Holmes showed their appreciation to the students and staff for another wonderful year of exceptional results and achievements whilst acknowledging the support of their families to achieve the best possible outcomes. Peter also spoke with words of encouragement for their journey into their careers ahead.
This year the guest speaker was television producer and former student, Bella Lloyd. Bella graduated from Cirencester College 12 years ago and since then has had an exceptional rise through her TV career, from early beginnings as a runner for a post-production TV company. Bella is now a respected TV producer, editor and director for TV programmes such as Great Railway Journeys with Michael Portillo and The Apprentice.
Bella shared with the young people in the audience her 3 golden rules for a successful career which she abbreviated as ASK (Attitude, Skills and Knowledge).
Attitude – always have the right attitude and be prepared when going for interviews it will open doors for you.
Skills – be adaptable and try new things. Make sure you are a good team member, treating others with respect and kindness and being prepared to go the extra mile.
Knowledge – knowledge is always key but be assured of your own ability, people make mistakes but that is fine just make sure you learn from them.
Finally Bella’s last piece of advice, ‘Everything is possible, when you believe you will succeed you will achieve!”
Mia Higginson accompanied by Josh Rowe on the piano enchanted the audience with their exceptional renditions of Hiding in Your Hands from the Dear Evan Hansen musical and True Colours by Cyndi Lauper.
Students, staff and families all agreed this had been a wonderful evening of celebration.
