On Saturday 17 November, Scarborough College enjoyed a typically celebratory annual Prize Giving Ceremony at the Queen Street Methodist Central Hall in Scarborough.
As usual, the very many achievements of its leavers were marked in style, including the maximum score of 45 points in the IB Diploma by local boy Kristian Galea - a triumph which placed him within the top 1% of all students worldwide. Kristian is now studying Medicine at Cambridge.
The Guest of Honour, The Right Reverend Alison White, The Bishop of Hull, made a touching exhortation to the pupils to go on and make a real difference to others in their world beyond school.
The Old Scardeburgians' Alumni Award was this year presented to former Olympic bronze medal winning hockey player Mark Precious who, aside from his sporting success, gained a First Class degree from Oxford on departing the College and has enjoyed a distinguished career in the diplomatic service and finance since.
