College students completing their mock GCSE exams have been given a healthy breakfast in a bid to set them up for success.
The pupils at Witchford Village College will receive the health boost for a two-week period as they prepare themselves for their crucial exams.
Waitrose in Ely backed the college’s initiative to encourage students to enjoy fruit, yoghurts, low-sugar fruit juices, low-fat croissants and cereal bars.
Debbie Walker, head of community liaison at the supermarket arrived at the school laden with boxes of food donated by the store.
Paul Baynes, vice-principal and leader of the initiative, said: “We are very grateful to Waitrose for supporting our Year 11 students.
“Having breakfast is vital to being able to perform well in exams and the support from Waitrose ensures that all students have the opportunity to have a nutritious breakfast.
“We look forward to working with them throughout the year especially in the summer when the real examinations take place.”
