The exceptional achievements of our students and staff have been recognised at this year's Star Awards

These annual awards, held in collaboration with Crawley College, recognise hard work, education and determination, as well as individual accomplishments. They highlight students who have beaten the odds, achieved in adversity or gone the extra mile.

One student each year is selected as our overall 'Brightest Star' of the year.
