West Byfleet student Tracey Mwaniki was celebrated for her excellent academics during a special award ceremony at DLD College London.

Tracey, (18), of Byfleet, was presented with an award for Progression and Achievement in Government and Politics at the event held in the Westminster Bridge-based college’s stunning atrium. 

The year 13 Government and Politics and Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) student received a round of applause from guests during the event as she stepped onto stage to collect her award.

Ahead of the examination period, the Westminster Bridge-based college held an event to reward select students from GCSE, Year 12 and Year 13, by presenting them with honorary awards to praise their excellent academic achievements this year. 

The occasion was filled with entertainment from the talented cohort in between awards. Special guests, including Baroness Perry of Southwark and Richard Jones, Director of Property at the Alpha Plus Group, joined staff, students, parents and guardians as they enjoyed special musical renditions from the DLD Band, the Ukulele Group and a variety of singers and musicians. 

During the ceremony, Deputy Principal for Academics, Marie-Dominique Reza said: “We must recognise the effort, progress and achievement of our students. It isn’t just about what they have learned in terms of their subjects but also in themselves. Some have become more confident, independent, and resilient and they are now ready to go to university.

“Tracey is a very intelligent young lady who has had a fantastic academic year and we had to reward the hard work and dedication she has committed to her studies.”

Lady Perry also commented: “Congratulations to the students who chose to come to DLD College London, it is the best place in London that they could have chosen. I say that because DLD College London is dedicated to excellence and getting the best performance that every student who comes through the door is capable of achieving.”
