Among City College Norwich’s 2016 FE Award winners was double-Paralympic medallist Alfie Hewett.  Whilst Alfie was in action in Rio in the final of the men’s wheelchair doubles competition, he was being honoured back in Norwich for his achievements over the last year as a City College Norwich student. 

In addition to his on-court successes, which included a first Wimbledon title (with doubles partner Gordon Reid), Alfie impressively gained top marks of a triple Distinction for his Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sports and Exercise Science.

FE Awards celebrate outstanding students from the class of 2016

City College Norwich toasted the achievements of its outstanding further education students from 2015-16 with its Further Education (FE) Awards at the Assembly House, Norwich, on Thursday 15th September.

This is the 12th year in which the College has held a dedicated FE Awards ceremony in its current form, and this year’s awards have added significance because 2016 marks the College’s 125th anniversary.

City College Norwich students hear from man who was wrongly sentenced to death

A Level students at City College Norwich were left moved and inspired following a talk given by Nick Yarris, who was sentenced to death by electric chair at the age of 20 for a crime he did not commit.

American-born Mr Yarris shared his harrowing experiences with the students and described what life was like on death row. He described how he was convicted and how he educated himself from his maximum security prison cell and explained how learning about the discovery of modern DNA testing ultimately played a pivotal role in his eventual acquittal and in turning his life around.

Devour's success helps students earn as well as learn

Devour, a catering company which employs students from City College Norwich, achieved further growth over the last year – with demand for wedding and event catering helping it pass the milestone of having provided a total of 5,500 hours of paid student work.

This has been great news for the 57 City College Norwich students currently on Devour’s books - they not only gain invaluable experience of work to supplement their learning at college, but a much-valued way to earn some extra cash. 

Alfie’s quest to win a medal at Rio 2016 Paralympics

Today sees the start of the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games and Alfie Hewett, who completed the Level 3 Sport and Exercise Diploma with City College Norwich this summer, is targeting Paralympic medal success to add to his Wimbledon triumph earlier this year. 

Alfie will be representing Team GB in both the singles and doubles wheelchair tennis events at the Games.

Alfie, who is 18, will be attending the opening ceremony today and will be making his first appearance on court in Rio on Friday 9th September.
