Lord Lexden Presents Award to Cherwell student
23rd April 2018
Lord Lexden Presents Awards to 41 Outstanding Students, including Wenxi from Cherwell College!
At the annual CIFE Academic Awards Ceremony held at the House of Lords last Wednesday, 18th April, Lord Lexden presented awards for academic excellence to forty-one students who achieved remarkable A-level and GCSE results last summer. The recipients - some British, some from overseas - were warmly applauded at the presentation, all having studied at sixth-form colleges belonging to the Council for Independent Education (CIFE), of which Alistair Lexden is President.
Lord Lexden said: “This event recognises and celebrates tremendous academic achievement in our national exams by students from all over the world. It is an important acknowledgement of the success not only of the pupils themselves, but also of their teachers, and of their families who entrust their children to our independent sixth-form colleges. At a time of worrying uncertainty about Britain’s future created by Brexit, CIFE and its member colleges will continue to spread the message at home and especially abroad that they intend to play a full part in maintaining our world-class reputation for scholarship and in welcoming international students to the UK, as they have always done."
Wenxi Zhang won the award for Outsanding Contribution to College Life and is now studying for a degree in Architecture at UCL.
