Overall Student of the Year

Isobel Butter, who after leaving SCG is now at Cambridge University taking Spanish and Russian, was presented with the Overall Student of the Year to accompany her Modern Languages Student of the Year award.

Described by her tutor as an outstanding, focused and charming student, with an insatiable desire to learn, she was a joy to teach, with her love of learning and her enthusiasm for new ideas and for challenge.

Isobel’s citation highlighted: ‘Throughout the course, she maintained an excellent level of work in all skill areas and was always keen to extend the range of her language… to her credit, she continued to work to the same standards throughout the periods of lockdown and coped extremely well with online learning.’

The award winners

The winners in attendance at the event were presented with a trophy to commemorate their achievement, a copy of their award citation, and a cheque to appreciate their efforts. Guests at the event included families of the winners as well as headteachers from the award winners’ previous schools.

James Staniforth, Principal of Shrewsbury Colleges Group, said, ‘The dedication, skill and effort that these students demonstrated throughout their time with the college is an inspiration. These students have had to contend with the significant disruption to their studies caused by last year's period of lockdown, these students have excelled at all times.’
