Summer Commendation Evening
Students at Falmouth School and Falmouth College celebrated another fantastic school year at the Summer Commendation Evening 2017. Students from in years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 12 were recognised for a term of hard work, with the coveted ‘Student of the Year’ awards. Other awards on the evening were for students who had made the most progress, highest attainment and significant contributions across the school and college.
Awards were split into categories for the Lower School (Years 7 and 8), Upper School (Years 9 and 10) and College (Years 12), with Year 11 and Year 13 students already completing the final year of their GCSE and A Levels. Lower School students were first up on the night, with James Chambers, Harriette Ling (both Year 7), Piran Ashburn and Ellie Casey (both Year 8) winning the attainment awards. The progress awards for Lower School went to Daniel Williams, Faith Coyne (both Year 7) Hugo Arbones and Myah Grant (both Year 8).

Falmouth College Year 12 students were next to be recognised, with Jack Orders and Amber Luckett picking up the attainment awards. The progress awards were scooped by Jaw Seamark and Abiah Wyatt.
