We’re delighted that Carfax student Huaqing Hong was awarded a 2016 CIFE Prize for his outstanding contribution to college life.  Huaqing moved from China in the summer of 2014. He joined Carfax College in order to complete his A levels in one year and apply to continue into higher education within the UK. He finished with straight A grades in Economics, Physics, and Mathematics, and has gone on to read Economics at the University of Edinburgh.

Besides his academic success, Huaqing was keen to get involved in college life outside the classroom, joining the College’s Polo programme despite never having played before, and contributing to the College’s respectable showing at the inaugural CIFE Challenge.

Huaqing is shown below with a member of Carfax staff at the Awards ceremony held at the House of Lords in March 2016.
