Alsager School Sixth Form Presentation Evening

AS-IMG_2641Alsager Sixth Form College capped off its best ever year by celebrating the achievements of former students at its annual Presentation Evening. 

With half of all last summer’s A level grades either an A*- B and many students achieving at least three or more A*- B A levels, competition for the college’s awards was tougher than ever.

Nadine Rowley, who achieved three A*s in Economics, Geography and Psychology and is now studying for a degree at Liverpool University, won The Governors’ Cup as the highest achieving student. The prize was awarded by Chair of Governors and Chairman of Alsager Community Trust, Allan Ward.

There was also the presentation of the inaugural Katy Wright Science Bursary, awarded to Sarah Clarke (Grade As in Chemistry and German and a Grade B in Biology). This special award is dedicated to the life of Katy, a former Alsager student, who passed away from a rare form of cancer aged just 30. The bursary was presented by the Wright family and is hoped to inspire young people to pursue a career in science or mathematics. Sarah is now studying Tropical Disease Biology at Liverpool University

Other awards such The Headteacher’s Award and Director of Sixth Form Award were also handed out.

Joe Plimbley, now studying at Wolverhampton University, received The Headteacher’s Award for outstanding progress from Alsager Sixth Form College Headteacher, Richard Middlebrook. Meanwhile, Bangor University student Adam Smits received the Director of Sixth Form Award from Sixth Form Director, Alison Pole. This award was in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the school.

On the Presentation Evening, Headteacher Richard Middlebrook said: “It has been a real pleasure welcoming back our former students and formally presenting them with their A level and BTEC certificates; a fantastic way to end the year and we wish them all the very best for 2014 and beyond.”

Director of Sixth Form, Alison Pole, added: “It has been wonderful to see so many of our former students this evening and to celebrate their success with them and their families. We wish them all every success for the future”.
