Every year, the Association of College’s asks its members to nominate students for the Student of the Year Awards. The awards celebrate truly unique students who have not just overcome adversity but who are also naturally gifted. Student of the Year finalists have used their achievements and talents to give back and positively impact their college and/or community.

Alanna was nominated by our Sport Science and Public Services Programme Manager, Mark Treagust. Of 115 students nominated, Alanna was one of only two students to be highly commended. She will receive a certificate from the Association of Colleges, and has been invited to a reception at the House of Commons.

Programme Manager, Mark Treagust, said: “When we were asked to nominate students for the Student of the Year awards, Alanna came to mind straight away.

“She’s a fantastic student who is incredibly motivated and driven, and has embraced every opportunity given to her – whether this was heading off to Edge Hill University for a week long placement, or representing the student body as a Student Governor.

“Alanna gained D*D*D* for her Sport Science BTEC with us, and is now heading to the University of Hertfordshire to study a degree in Sport. We wish her the best of luck!”
