A huge congratulations to our former High Pavement Sixth Form student Jess Burton, who has won the AQA Project Excellence Award at the Association of Colleges Student of the Year awards.

The annual Association of Colleges’ Student of the Year awards celebrate students who stand out from the crowd, have gone above and beyond, whether in college or their local community.

The AQA and AoC Project Excellence Award celebrates the most interesting, exciting, and inspirational student research projects from Higher and Extended Project Qualifications. The award aims to recognize, reward, and highlight the fantastic range of research and artifacts produced and the skills developed by students. Jess produced an outstanding piece of literature about art and vampires for her Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).

Each year the level of applications is extremely high, and it goes to show the fantastic work that students are doing in colleges as well as the lengths colleges go to support their students. Well done Jess on winning you should be extremely proud. 

 — Corrienne Peasgood, President of the Association of Colleges.

Jess Burton is also celebrating a dream come true after securing her place at the University of Cambridge to study a Scholarship Foundation Year in Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences. 

I joined Nottingham College after a turbulent time with my GCSE’s. The support I received was incredible. My teachers believed in me and truly went above and beyond, and it truly means the world. I wouldn’t be in this position without them. 

 — Jess Burton.

We caught up with Jess on results day and asked her about her experience studying at High Pavement Sixth Form.
