Art and Design Student Francesca Wainwright
Art and Design student Francesca Wainwright was delighted to be named Student of the Year, after returning to education to gain a qualification in creative arts.
The 28-year-old Art and Design student, who is now moving on to study textiles at Birmingham City University, said: “I’ve loved the course. I came to the college with just GCSEs and it’s great that people have seen something in me and given me the confidence to continue.
“I know it’s a cliché but it’s been life changing. I now have a direction in life.”
