Students from courses including hairdressing, travel, catering and sports science received awards in front of an audience of over 200 people at Marina Pavilion.

But it was a ceremony with a difference.

Students and staff from the school put on presentations of their skills: the audience saw a cake being made against the clock, a demonstration of Pilates and some live-on-stage hairdressing.

Course Team Leader, Oonagh Hague, said: "The evening was a huge success and it gave a real flavour of what's on offer in the School. It was good to see local schoolchildren attending as part of the college's Increased Flexibility programme. These kind of events can be quite inspirational for them."

The event was sponsored by Goldwells hairdressing supplies.
