Arty student scoops two awards

Laura Kearns 17th Aug, 2020

AN ARTY student has scooped two awards at the Stratford College Student Awards.

Art & Design student Ella Witheford from Offenham took home the Outstanding Achievement in English and Maths Award and the Principal’s Award.

The former marked the progress she has made with her GCSE English and Maths studies this year, while the latter – awarded for commitment and overall attitude – recognised Ella’s exemplary approach to learning and college life.

She said: “When I found out that I had won both the English and Maths award and the Principal’s award, I was shocked and completely lost for words, but also proud of myself.”

Next year Ella will be continuing at college to study graphic design and then she hopes to continue her studies or move to animation or performing arts.

The awards were this year held via video conference app Zoom after the pandemic forced the ceremony to be cancelled.
