City College Norwich has ended the year with a celebration of the achievements of students who completed Further Education courses with Easton College, Norwich College, and Paston College, during 2021. 

Due to the pandemic, this year’s awards celebration was held online rather than as a face-to-face event. The change of format did not detract from the inspirational stories of success and achievement by students that were shared on the evening. 

A total of 22 award winners were announced during the ceremony, reflecting the huge breadth of Further Education courses available at the three colleges – from agriculture to digital industries - and spanning every level from Entry Level to Level 3 (A Level equivalent), including technical and vocational qualifications, GCSEs and A Levels, and pre-employment training. 

From these 22 outstanding students, two exceptional individuals were presented with additional awards – Paston A Level student Poppy Bye being awarded The Governors’ Award for Outstanding Student Achievement, and Professional Cookery student Patsakorn Thitisap receiving The Governors’ Robert Walton Award for Outstanding Contribution to College Life. 

Corrienne Peasgood OBE, Principal, City College Norwich, Easton College, and Paston College, commented: 

Even though we had to hold our Further Education Student Awards ceremony virtually this year, it was really important for us to recognise the achievements of all our students who completed Further Education courses this year. 


The class of 2021 started their college year learning in ‘bubbles’. They were periods when the pandemic meant that they had to learn from home, and when individual students and staff were self-isolating. 


Despite all these hurdles, which were particularly challenging for those studying towards vocational and technical qualifications, our students and staff showed incredible determination, resilience, creativity, and positivity in striving to achieve the best possible learning outcomes. 


It is always incredibly difficult to select small number of award winners from so many fantastic student achievements. These award winners have all done exceptionally well and are amazing examples of where Further Education can take you.”
