Nescot commended the success and achievement of 44 students at the Student of the Year Awards ceremony held at the college’s Adrian Mann Theatre yesterday (13.06.24). Students accompanied by their families and friends, gathered to receive their well-deserved awards.  

The evening commenced in Skills Park, with everyone present enjoying lively entertainment by our Performing Arts students and delicious canapes prepared and served by our Hospitality and Catering students. This was followed by the awards presentation in the theatre, hosted by Julie Kapsalis, Principal and CEO and Andy Cowan, Deputy Principal for Curriculum and Quality.

Certificates were presented by the Mayor of Epsom & Ewell, Cllr Steve Bridger and Julie Kapsalis to students nominated by their tutors for their commitment, hard-work and excellent progress during the year.

Speaking at the Awards ceremony, Julie Kapsalis said, “Congratulations to all our Student of the Year awardees. This ceremony is a celebration of our amazing students from across the wide range of subject areas, recognising their great achievements and successes at our college. We appreciate all of your dedication and resilience in maintaining high standards throughout the year.

“This year marks the college’s Platinum anniversary and makes me reflect on the thousands of students who have studied here over the past 70 years and the wonderful careers and achievements that those students have gone on to.

“I hope you are all proud of what you have achieved and I am delighted that we have events like this to celebrate your achievements. I know I speak for all Nescot staff when I say how proud we are of you.”

Nick Vaughan-Barratt, Vice-Chair of Governors, Nescot Corporation, applauded and thanked all the families present, teachers, support staff and all the leaders around the college who have done so much for the students and their time here at the college.  Addressing the students, he said, “It’s a pleasure to be here today on behalf of all the governors to congratulate you on your successes. The future for you is hugely exciting and I know you will make a great success of it. I wish you all the luck in whatever you do – be excited and change the world for the better.”

The students along with their families and friends were also joined by their tutors, Heads of Departments and Assistant Principals of the college.

In addition to the Student of the Year Awards, 5 special awards were also given out to students who have achieved great things during the year. These included, Nescot Values Awards for - Collaboration & Innovation, Ambition & Aspiration and Determination, The Chair of Governor’s Award for Excellence and The Principal’s Award for Kindness and Commitment.
