STUDENTS from a Scarborough school have been rewarded for their academic success.

The pupils from Scarborough College Senior School were invited to a special prizegiving ceremony at the Spa with many students returning to receive their International Baccalaureate Diplomas and awards.

Some students had even travelled from abroad to be there and to attend the Old Scardeburgians’ Ball in the evening.

Deputy mayor Cllr Helen Mallory attended the ceremony and presented The Geraghty Cup for the Deputy Head of School.

The guest speaker for the event was Dr Stephen Winkley, currently Head of Rossall School in Lancashire, and parents and friends of the College also attended, including many members of the Old Scardeburgians’ Association.

A spokesman said: “Mr Winkley lived up to his reputation as an entertaining speaker, causing lots of laughter.

“However, he also stressed the value of the education the pupils at Scarborough College are receiving, urging them to strive to be beacons of success in the future.”
