Seventeen-year-old Georgia’s mum Gail, said: “She was surprised and delighted to have won the awards because she didn’t even know that they did them.
“She loves college and her tutors and she really enjoys volunteering for everything that they offer, we are very proud.”
During her first exhausting year of college, Georgia has already taken on skiiing in Bulgaria and a racket sports trip to Spain as well as a stint volunteering with children in Morocco.
She has also found time to play netball for her college as well as represent Cambridgeshire cadets in netball, football, dodgeball and hockey.
Georgia has also excelled in her studies, with distinction grades across the board throughout her first year on the course.
