KGV Celebrates Students’ Success at Awards Evening


On Friday 1 July, King George V College hosted an Awards Event to celebrate the achievements of second year students and commemorate their time at the College.

Over one hundred and fifty staff, students and parents turned out to watch the ceremony, which was held in the performance theatre of KGV’s new Creative Arts Building.

Anne-Marie Francis, Acting Principal at KGV College, said, ‘It was a pleasure to see so many people joining us for our end of year awards evening.’

‘It was fantastic to celebrate student achievement and reward our students for the outstanding efforts they have made during the year. The event was a real success.’

Each subject area nominated three students who had shown hard work, dedication and commitment to their studies throughout their time at KGV and a winner for each subject was announced on the night. A number of sponsored awards were also presented, including The David Sutton Award for Endeavour, The Ambalal Trivedi Award for Medicine and The Sports Scholarship.

Anne-Marie added, ‘I would like to thank our sponsors who fundraise and donate so generously in support of the College. Their contribution to KGV is much appreciated.’

‘I would also like to thank our staff who have worked tirelessly throughout the year to facilitate lessons, engage learners, support, and challenge and nurture our students and who are without doubt the greatest asset a college could have.’

The event was organised with the help of five advanced level second year students who worked hard to ensure the evening was a success. These students were Charlie Hayward, Cameron Neilson, Vannah Pollock, Mark Jump and Alex Beveridge.

Charlie, who studies Psychology, Law English Language and Business at KGV, said, ‘I really enjoyed the evening and thought it was a huge success – I’m glad we were all able to pull it together at the end after the weeks of planning!’

‘I will always look back on my time at KGV with happiness and I want to thank the College for making a difference to my life.’
