The programme to celebrate achievement at Cricklade College - with 95% success rate at A levels - was kicked off by Arron Hearsum, Team Commander of the Red Devils who spoke after a video showing the Devils in Action. His theme was that "the only person that can hold you back - is you."
After the presentations of the Awards, the Music Students perfomred and there was a buffet.
Sponsors included Stannah Lifts, Testway Housing, Vitacress, Transplus, the Chantry Centre and Test Valley District Council.
Extract from the Principal's Welcome
Welcome to this year's Celebration of Achievement, and what a wonderful year it has been.
In the few short years that I have been Principal, I have witnessed enormous change and this year has been no exception.
Outwardly the college looks familiar, but behind the scenes, managers, lecturers, support staff and our learners have made incredible contributions, ensuring that our recent Ofsted inspection was a good one, a public report that will serve Cricklade well for the future - and contributions that have helped to ensure that our learners' examination results were once again ... outstanding.
We value the relationship we have with all our sponsors and I want to take this opportunity to thank them for their continued commitment to Cricklade
College. As well as offering tremendous encouragement, their support gives public recognition to our learners' efforts and achievements.
And finally. . .the governors, staff and I would like to congratulate all learners that have been
invited here this evening and to offer a warm welcome to you, your families and friends and to
all our distinguished guests. Enjoy the evening
