Prin­ci­pal Anne Field­ing Smith was de­lighted to wel­come back the class of 2014 along with a num­ber of spe­cial guests, in­clud­ing the Mayor of Run­nymede Peter Wad­dell, the Master and War­dens of the Wor­ship­ful Company of Coop­ers, the col­lege’s trus­tees, gover­nors, staff and rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the col­lege’s part­ner schools as well as the award win­ners and their fam­i­lies. A to­tal of 27 prizes were pre­sented on the night in­clud­ing the pres­ti­gious Henry Strode Prize and Ter­cente­nary Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Bur­sary. Th­ese awards are given to the stu­dent who achieves the best over­all re­sults in the col­lege. This year they were awarded to Cameron Thomas, who achieved three A*s in maths, fur­ther maths and physics, plus an A in chem­istry. He will shortly be go­ing to Univer­sity Col­lege London to read math­e­mat­ics and physics. Six tal­ented stu­dent mu­si­cians en­ter­tained guests with a va­ri­ety of pieces, and travel and tourism BTEC stu­dents as­sisted with the hos­pi­tal­ity for the event. The stu­dents’ roles for the evening in­cluded di­rect­ing and stew­ard­ing guests on ar­rival, reg­is­ter­ing guests and VIPs, wel­com­ing guests on en­try, de­liv­er­ing food to ta­bles and serv­ing drinks through­out the event. The evening was brought to a con­clu­sion by vice chair­man of gover­nors Phil Rad­cliff, who com­pli­mented the event and the level of tal­ent and achieve­ment shown by the stu­dents.
