Over 200 students and their families, former students and staff members gathered in the atrium at Lowestoft Sixth Form College, where they heard testimonials of excellence and hard work in a year that saw the A-level pass rate hit 100pc.

The guest speaker at the event on Wednesday December 13 was Emma Jeffs, a former sixth form student who is in her first year of studying dance at the Master Performing Arts college in London. Having achieved a double distinction star in Lowestoft, she reflected on her time as a sixth form student.
