FORMER students from Huddersfield New College enjoyed an evening of celebration at Huddersfield Town Hall.
The night commemorated the achievements of 2011 leavers.
Teachers and ex-pupils mingled at a drinks reception before the formal prize-giving where a series of awards were given in a variety of categories.
Pro-vice chancellor of the University of Huddersfield Professor Tim Thornton was invited as the guest speaker and also presented certificates.
In his speech he talked about the importance of education and hard work.
He said that he believed the “young people presented would go on to be highly successful and influential individuals in the future if they continued to work hard and achieve further academic success.”
