Hartpury celebrates students’ success at annual Prize Day A-level and Diploma students at College Prize Day last week (Thursday 21 June). 

Students who had made outstanding achievements throughout the year were recognised with trophies and prizes.

Guest of Honour, Anna McNuff presented students with their awards and congratulated each of them on their accomplishments. The day highlighted so many highly motivated young people who stand out due to their ambition, commitment, confidence and individual skills. Prizes ranged from academic achievements, subject specific awards and overall prizes for those demonstrating effort and endeavour.

Anna McNuff is a celebrated athlete, author and motivational speaker. Passionate about inspiring others and challenging herself, Anna has been named by the Guardian as one of the top female adventurers of our time. She inspired the students with her talk about her trek through New Zealand, where she ran 1,911 miles along the Te Araroa trail. She visited schools and community groups talking about outdoor adventure while raising money for The Outward Bound Trust to send young people on adventures of their own.

Students were joined by their parents, friends, Hartpury staff and governors who helped them celebrate their special day.

Hartpury College is a unique environment where young people can thrive and reach their potential.

This year’s ceremony was Hartpury College’s 68th annual Prize Day, celebrating an exciting year for Hartpury staff and students. Some highlights for college students were many international study trips including Spain and Morocco, individual and team sporting success, summer and winter ball and community events such as the school games and big health check.
