End of year awards for Highbury College

Have your say

WITH the academic year drawing to a close, families and friends gathered at Portsmouth’s Guildhall for the annual Highbury College Celebration of Achievement awards.

Individuals were recognised for outstanding achievements in higher and further education, with the college receiving its first full honours degree.

The ceremony, now in its 51st year, handed out special awards to those students who had shown exceptional progress. Portsmouth’s Lord Mayor, Councillor Frank Jonas, was among the guests, speaking of his admiration for the hard work all the students put in, and how the importance of further education can set them up for later life.
