OUT­STAND­ING stu­dents from Charn­wood Col­lege were recog­nised for their aca­demic, sport­ing and artis­tic achieve­ments at the col­lege’s an­nual Ex­cel­lence Evening.

More than sev­enty awards were pre­sented to stu­dents who had ex­celled in both their A lev­els and GCSE’s, with special guests in­clud­ing the Deputy Mayor of Charn­wood, Coun­cil­lor Pauline Ran­son, Nicky Mor­gan MP and Rowena Hack­wood, chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer at the David Ross Ed­u­ca­tion Trust.

Amongst the stu­dents cel­e­brat­ing was head boy David Horstmann, who will now study Com­puter Sci­ence at the Univer­sity of Cam­bridge.

David won a num­ber of awards, in­clud­ing the prize for ex­cel­lence in Fur­ther Math­e­mat­ics, an award for achiev­ing a Grade 8 in Vi­o­lin and recog­ni­tion for achiev­ing two A*s and two As at A level this year.

Charn­wood’s head girl, Is­abel Dung­worth, se­cured an im­pres­sive four A*s in her A lev­els and was awarded the Lough­bor­ough Univer­sity Tro­phy as the High­est Achiev­ing Sixth For­mer.

Is­abel’s younger brother, Joel Dung­worth, was also cel­e­brat­ing as he picked up a num­ber of awards.

Special recog­ni­tion also went to 19 stu­dents who com­peted at a na­tional, re­gional and county level in sport in 2017.

Se­san Rus­sell, who cur­rently rep­re­sents Great Bri­tain in U18s bas­ket­ball, was named 3M Sports­man of the Year and the 3M Sportswoman of the Year was awarded to Megan Jones, who was se­lected to rep­re­sent Team GB in U18s Womens’ Bas­ket­ball dur­ing the FIBA Euro­pean Cham­pi­onships.

Other prizes in­cluded the John Smith Award for over­all progress, which was pre­sented to Sh­erya Yadev, and the Cor­bett Tro­phy for con­tri­bu­tion to the Ex­pres­sive Arts fac­ulty which was given to Evie Doyle.

Charn­wood Col­lege prin­ci­pal Dan Neal said: “These stu­dents are a true in­spi­ra­tion and they whole-heart­edly de­serve this recog­ni­tion for the in­cred­i­ble ded­i­ca­tion they have shown to their stud­ies and life at Charn­wood Col­lege.

“These are not unique sto­ries, but a re­flec­tion of the many tal­ented, well-rounded and in­spir­ing in­di­vid­u­als here at Charn­wood Col­lege.

“This year, we have seen many of our Sixth Form stu­dents con­tinue their aca­demic jour­ney at some of the coun­try’s top uni­ver­si­ties.

“We could not be more proud of their achieve­ments and look for­ward to hear­ing of their fur­ther suc­cesses in the fu­ture.”
