TOP students at the College of West Anglia celebrated success on Wednesday with a special ceremony at the Isle campus.

The students were all nominated by lecturers across all faculties and were presented with a trophy by Principal David Pomfret to mark their achievements.

More than 40 hard-working students were honoured. Mr Pomfret praised all the award winners for their hard-work and dedication, sentiments echoed by chairman of the governors Peter Dixon.
