A teenager with Asperger’s syndrome has won a top award having become the first Supported Learning student at Northampton College to progress directly onto a Level 3 course.
Liam Hargreaves-Playford was honoured at the college’s annual awards ceremony – which saw dozens of students celebrated for their academic achievements over the past 12 months.
The 19-year-old from Moulton was frustrated by previous experiences of education when he arrived at Booth Lane but has thrived in his new surroundings and is now studying sports development and coaching.
A stunning tile mural has been unveiled at Northampton College’s Daventry campus to mark the building’s first birthday.
The display was revealed as part of an Open Event held at the campus on Tuesday, November 21, designed to help prospective students find out more about college life and the courses available to them.
Principal Pat Brennan-Barrett said: “This mural is a true collaboration of creativity, made up of hundreds of individually designed tiles, and is a fitting way to celebrate the first birthday of our state-of-the-art new campus.
“It’s a brilliant piece of work – made by students, staff, local businesses and members of the community.
“We are hugely grateful to everyone who has played their part and contributed not only to the mural but have also made the last 12 months so special for all of us at Daventry.”
A commemorative mural is being launched and unveiled at Daventry Campus on Tuesday (21st November) – part of the college’s one-year birthday celebrations.
