Students, staff and governors from the College of West Anglia (CWA) came together with families and friends to celebrate outstanding academic and personal achievements at the annual CWA Student of the Year Awards ceremony.

The awards ceremony was held at King’s Lynn Alive Corn Exchange and hosted by Assistant Principal Student Services, Paul O’Shea. 30 students were shortlisted from approximately 6,000 students attending all of CWA’s campuses. Of these, ten students were crowned as winners in a range of categories.

CWA Principal, David Pomfret, opened with a review of the academic year, speaking about cross-campus triumphs, success stories and achievements. He said:

“CWA’s vision is “changing lives through learning” and there is no better demonstration of this than the achievements of the students we are celebrating this evening, and of the dedicated staff who helped them get here.

On behalf of everyone at CWA, I am so proud that tonight we will recognise these students’ commitment, standard of work and achievements during the past year. I congratulate each of them on their success.

I would like to thank all the families, friends, employers and our partners here this evening for supporting and encouraging our students during the course of their studies at the college. I would also like to express my gratitude to those staff who have provided such valuable support for their studies. Finally, I would like to thank the sponsors of the various awards for their generous backing.”
