SOUTHAMPTON youngsters have thrown an “Oscar-style” awards night to celebrate their academic achievements.

The evening gave students at City College Southampton experience in organising and running an awards ceremony.

Production arts students designed and managed the stage, lighting and sound; media students filmed throughout the evening and hospitality students created and served a “delicious” menu of street food.

Students, parents, businesses and VIPs gathered on Wednesday for the annual awards evening to recognise the successes of over 50 of its students.
