Joshua Linnell was awarded the Governors’ prize for Best Student after completing a vocational studies course at Moulton College.
Though the School Link programme, students on the Foundation Learning Tier have undertaken a programme of activities at the college to help prepare them for the post-16 world.
Since September, Josh has been working towards a BTEC in Vocational Studies, gaining skills in agriculture, horticulture, interior design, plumbing, estate skills and animal care.
His effort and good work in these lessons led to him receiving a £50 voucher, which was presented by the Vice Chancellor of the University of Northampton, Professor Nick Petford.
Josh said: "I really enjoyed all the work we did at Moulton College - I enjoyed it so much I applied for a place on the Agriculture course and I start in September."
Moulton College tutors report back on students' progress and this is used in conjunction with school-based work to gains credits towards the BTEC Diploma in Vocational Studies Level 1.
