Every year, Abingdon & Witney College celebrate the achievements of its students on a special evening at Blenheim Palace.
Held at the end of term in the grand surroundings of Clementine's on the Lawn at Blenheim Palace, the Student of the Year Awards (SOY) recognise amazing students from across the College's curriculum.
Every year, students, staff, friends, and family attend SOY and hear from our Heads of Faculty about student successes, the challenges students have faced and have overcome, and many other inspiring stories.
Each of the College's eleven faculties select two winners whose contribution to their class, dedication to their coursework or apprenticeship or who have overcome adversity is recognised.
This year, the Overall Student of the Year Award went to Nataliia Ryzhova, who is on the Creative Arts Level 2 Study Programme.
Special thanks also go to our talented Performing Arts students, who provide musical entertainment during the interval.
For more information about this year's award ceremony and nominations, read our Student of the Year news article.
