Stars Awards 2018

Celebrating student success

Stars of 2018, supported by Irwin Mitchell and City & Guilds, celebrated the outstanding achievements of our students.

Academic brilliance, vocational excellence, determination and sheer hard work were some of the qualities celebrated at our awards ceremony, as around 50 students and members of staff were rewarded for the amazing accomplishments over the past year.

The night featured spectacular performances from students on courses such as musical theatre, dance and hair & makeup, as well as an incredible performance of ‘Lucy In the Sky with Diamonds’ from Theatre Inc.

Andrew Green, Executive Principal of Chichester College Group, said: "We say our aim is to change lives through learning, and nights like this one help us to see how we are doing just that. We hear about obstacles being overcome, achievements being made and we see students taking the first steps towards achieving their dreams.

"We also celebrate our dedicated staff, who move mountains to ensure we can offer our students fantastic opportunities.”
