Welcome to our Further Education Awards 2021!

Every year we hold a ceremony in which we celebrate the most exceptional members of our community at Hopwood Hall College. While we unfortunately can’t do this in the lavish, in-person way that we have in the past, we just couldn’t allow this special occasion to pass without recognising some of the incredible achievements we’ve seen this year.

There really have been so many amazing success stories. Despite some truly extraordinary circumstances, we have been so proud to see so many of you reaching your goals in the face of adversity. These awards are our way of tipping our hat to you for demonstrating the most resilience and determination.

This year’s nominees have all been handpicked by our tutors. These members of staff have watched on proudly as a select few have proven to be the ‘best of the best’ – not an easy feat amongst such a talented college community!

As winners you should feel incredibly proud. These awards are recognition of the amazing work ethic and positive attitude that you have brought to your studies. We hope that this celebration of your achievements will be even more motivation for you to keep reaching for the stars!

Finally, we’d like to say ‘good luck’ to everyone whose journey with us is coming to an end. We’re so proud of all you have achieved at Hopwood Hall College.

Whether you’ll be continuing in education to develop your skills or whether you’ll be taking the first steps in your career, we wish you all the success in the world. Please do stay in touch because we’d love to hear about all the fantastic things you go on to do!

Here’s our Principal and CEO, Julia Heap, AND NAZIR AFZAL OBE, CHAIR OF THE CORPORATION with a special celebratory message!

Without further ado, here is our big reveal for the winners of our Further Education Awards 2021...

The following special awards are given annually to celebrate those students and staff who have managed to shine brightest from within an entire sea of stars!

This includes our prestigious Star Awards, which go to students who are particularly exceptional and have gone above and beyond to achieve their goals.

A selection of certificates, trophies, vouchers or cash prizes are on their way to our winners.

Congratulations to all of our winners - well done on your achievements!

The following awards celebrate those students who have demonstrated the most progress and experienced the highest achievements during the academic year.

Your hard work has not gone unnoticed by your tutors and you are all worthy winners for your curriculum area!
