Southwark College hosted this year's Student Awards Ceremony at The Unicorn Theatre to celebrate students' determination, hard work, and academic achievements. From lively music and photography to refreshments, the Student Awards was a joyous occasion, bringing together Southwark College's community and its wider support network of peers, family and friends. 

The ceremony included a presentation of awards in three categories: Most Improved, Leadership and Community Engagement and Excellence. The awards were presented to the winners by the Heads of Faculty for their curriculum areas following an int-depth nomination and selection process.

The Student Union and a group of English and maths students were also recognized for their commitment, dedication, and hard work this year.

Jane Button, Principal at Southwark College, presented the Student of the Year Awards to a selected group of students who excelled in their studies and showed exceptional achievement and dedication over the year.

She said: "I am delighted to have celebrated our Annual Student Awards ceremony at the wonderful Unicorn Theatre.

"I am incredibly proud of each and every one of our students. They have shown great determination, grit, and dedication to their studies. Their success is a testament to their hard work. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our great staff whose tireless dedication to students make the difference. On behalf of all my colleagues, I express our heartfelt congratulations to all award winners. You have made us proud, and we wish you all the best in your future careers."

Muhammad Ibraheem, a Level 3 Business student who received the Excellence Award, said: "The Student Awards ceremony was a very emotional experience for me and my parents. I want to give a massive thank you to the Business department for supporting me throughout this journey. From the great teaching to the well-planned lessons and trips, I am grateful for everything this course has shown me. I would encourage anyone considering their education options to study at Southwark College."

From being the most improved to the best in their cohort, students across a range of departments and courses were praised for their efforts this academic year. The auditorium was filled with supportive family, friends, and staff, ready to praise the students for succeeding and making significant gains in their education.

Congratulations to all the students who were nominated and won awards this year and the staff who have continued to support and guide them in their academic journeys.
