STUDENTS from Huddersfield New College celebrated their success at the college's annual awards evening.
More than 400 people attended the event at the Galpharm Stadium, Huddersfield. Most were students who had left in the summer and included special guest the Mayor of Kirklees, Clr Margaret Fearnley.
College principal Philip Forrest, praised the 626 students who gained A-levels with a 97% pass rate.
He said: "The results are particularly pleasing when you compare the actual grades achieved by the students with the predicted grades based on their performance at GCSE level.
"They place the college in the top 10 of sixth-form colleges nationally."
