A Vote of Thanks was given by Shirley Collier, Chair of Governors at York College.

Glyn Jones, Assistant Principal for A Levels said: “It is lovely to celebrate the success of many talented and hard-working former students from the College’s A Level Faculty - it is also fantastic to see them supported by their families, friends and former College tutors. Meeting up with the students again after their first term at university is so pleasing - they have all made an easy transition from College to university and it is great to see. They are an inspiration to our current students.”
