This week we held our annual Presentation Evening with last years’ Year 11 students returning to the College to collect their GCSE certificates and celebrate their achievements with staff and friends.
The guest speaker was Ian Wright, CBE, who is the Chief Executive of the Food & Drink Federation (FDF). Ian spoke of his background in the Public Relations industry and delivered inspirational messages to students, staff and the wider community.
Stuart Williams, Principal, commented “It was a fantastic evening of celebration. This year group have worked extremely hard together, both in their academic and personal lives. They celebrate not only a fantastic set of GCSE results, but also their time together at Catmose College. I wish every single one of them the very best for their future and I know they will all do extremely well.”
This year the Principal’s award was presented to Millie Taylor who was an outstanding student in every way. Millie brought to the College a keen sense of social justice and a natural ability as a public speaker. We will always remember how the entire College was silent as she spoke of her passion for the RNIB and their lots for dots campaign which she persuaded every one of us to get behind.
Stuart Williams said of MillIe; ‘I have no doubt this will not be the last we hear of Millie who I envisage one day challenging the current politicians for their job as Prime Minister. Millie was also an academic scholar for English and talented writer who has gone onto gain a grade 8 in English literature alongside 5 other GCSEs.’
