Students at Witchford Village College got the red carpet treatment when attending the school’s Oscars Awards Ceremony on Thursday (July 19).
Students were nominated for awards by college staff in recognition of their achievements throughout the academic year.
A spokesman said: “Two awards were presented for each subject area, with students being acknowledged for not only their academic success but also for their willingness and commitment to achieve.
“There were also community, governor, school contribution and principal’s awards.
“These were presented in recognition of students’ achievements both within and outside the college. Many were identified for their charity work and willingness to help others less fortunate than themselves.”
Awards were presented by John Willis, founder of Power2Inspire. He gave a speech about his life and achievements despite being born without fully formed arms and legs.
He set up the Power2Inspire charity to promote sport for everyone.
