Tennis star honoured

He may have spent the week battling for Paralympic glory, but wheelchair tennis star Alfie Hewett also celebrated success at City College’s further education awards.

He gained top marks of a triple Distinction for his Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sports and Exercise Science, and, before he flew out Rio, he received the award for Exceptional Individual Performance from college principal Corrienne Peasgood.

He said: “The time management and balancing it between tennis and training and making sure I got all of my assignments in on time was hard. I hope I can show and inspire others what you can do. For other kids out there I hope you can maybe look up to that and for me to show them that anything is possible.”

Award for outstanding achievement

Jared Carpenter, 22, from West Runton, won the Outstanding Achievement at AS Award, as well as The Governors’ Award for Outstanding Student Achievement.

He came to City College Norwich in 2012 as a Phoenix Purple student, a course designed to enable students with autistic spectrum disorders to progress on to further education and training.

He said: “I came to City College Norwich as a very nervous young individual. The courses I have done have given me the confidence to go on to other courses and achieve my A-levels. I nearly jumped for joy when I received the letter telling me that I had won the Outstand Achievement at AS Award but I never imagined in a million years that I would ever win the second award.”
