Local student recognised at national awards

Nelson and Colne College student, Lotte Peacock, has been recognised at a special event in Parliament. Lotte was named the Association of Colleges’ 16 to 18-years-old Student of the Year.  She was welcomed to Parliament by her local MP, Andrew Stephenson.

Lotte has shown great determination in overcoming adversity and achieving success.  She is from a low-income, single parent household in a deprived area of East Lancashire. Since attending college, she has used her passion for academia and the world we live in as a driving force to overcome her personal circumstances, and has secured a place at Oxford University to read Physics after getting A*s and As in her A Levels. Alongside her studies, Lotte has volunteered in the local community with children with special needs and adults with learning difficulties.

Andrew Stephenson MP, said, “I was delighted to welcome Lotte to Parliament, along with representatives from Nelson & Colne College. It was wonderful to hear first-hand how education has contributed to Lotte life and the brilliant support she has received from everyone at Nelson & Colne College. I wish her every success with her place at Oxford University.

Ian Ashman, President of the Association of Colleges, said: “Lotte Gleeson is an inspiring young person who has achieved great success.  She thoroughly deserves to be named the student of the year for 16 to 18-year-olds and I congratulate her on her success."

The reception in Parliament was sponsored by Peter Kyle MP, Chair of the APPG for Further Education and Lifelong Learning.
