This year, the college had the privilege of participating in MEI’s Further Education Maths Challenge, a prestigious competition for post-16 students working towards functional skills maths qualifications or higher grades in their GCSE Maths. The FE Maths Challenge, an extension of the renowned Maths Feasts, saw teams from across England compete in various mathematical disciplines, including problem-solving, comprehension, competition & recreation, and revision relays.

In a remarkable display of academic excellence, we recently held an awards ceremony in lieu to honour the exceptional achievements of our mathematics students.

Our CEO and Principal Tracy Aust addressed the gathering, expressing pride in the students' accomplishments and emphasising the college's mission to equip them with the skills and knowledge necessary to achieve their dreams.

Students competed in all four levels of the challenge: FE1 for those yet to achieve a higher grade, FE2 for those with higher GCSE grades, Functional Skills for advanced students, and SEN for students with special needs. The college's teams excelled, earning a total of six distinctions, ten merits, and eight passes.


Each student who had achieved a distinction, merit, or pass was called to the stage to receive a certificate of achievement. The ceremony also recognised the overall highest-achieving student in each category.

Before the awards, attendees watched a short video capturing the day of the competition, providing a visual testament to the students' hard work and dedication. The ceremony concluded with a heartfelt thank you to everyone who contributed to the success.

The ceremony reflected the College’s dedication to academic excellence and its role in shaping future mathematicians.
