Article in detail

At the annual CIFE Academic Awards Ceremony held at the House of Lords on Wednesday, 3rd 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.

The top prize, the CIFE Gold Award, was won by Louise Lyu from China, a student at MPW College, Birmingham, who had obtained A* grades in Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Chemistry and Physics. Louise’s performance in Physics was one of the highest in the country and she is now reading Physics at Imperial College, London.

The 2019 CIFE awards ceremony was supported by Double First and by Wesleyan Financial Services, both sponsors of the work CIFE colleges do.
