Awards celebrate outstanding students

Tameside College and Clarendon Sixth Form College congratulate top students with awards ceremony.

24 students from across both campuses attended the student of the year awards at Clarendon Sixth Form College’s theatre on Tuesday 7th June to accept their award.

Each student was selected because of their dedication to their studies, high achievement, attendance and grasp of theory in their subject area.

Alongside this, an overall student of the year student of the year was chosen for each college and other awards for ‘innovative leadership’ and industry placements were presented.

Jessica Jones and Mulundu Muyaba won the student of the year award for Tameside College and Clarendon Sixth Form College respectively.

Guests to the event included friends and family of the award winners and the college’s senior leadership team.

Nicola Welland, deputy principal at Tameside College, delivered Jessica’s award citation: “Jess is a foundation of knowledge and it’s a pleasure to see her blossom and develop over the three years of her college life. She is a source of support and guidance for her peers and can be relied on by all in her group. She’s caring, competent in all she does, committed to her studies, an excellent communicator and compassionate to others. Excellent work Jess.”

Hayley Wood, head of A levels at Clarendon Sixth Form College, congratulated Mulundu: “Mulundu joined the college after moving to the UK from Zimbabwe. Armed with just two GCSEs, Mulundu fought for her place at sixth form, sitting a range of science and Maths GCSE papers and scoring almost full marks. It was mutually decided that Mulundu wholeheartedly deserved a chance to achieve her A Levels to pursue her dream of becoming a doctor. Two years later she is on track to achieve three A*s in her A Levels in maths, chemistry and biology. She has been pooled for a place at the University of Cambridge to study medicine and has completed a vast array of work experience programmes. She is a role model for young people and thoroughly deserves to be named as student of the year. Congratulations Mulundu!”
