Guest of honour Conrad Humphreys said: “I very much enjoyed the Exeter College awards evening and celebrating the success of the students.

“As a former student and rugby player at the college - I have very fond memories of my time there before heading off to sail around the world in the 1993/4 Whitbread.”

A pair of students from Exmouth were among those celebrating exceptional achievements at a glittering Exeter College awards ceremony.

Oliver Barnard and Dakota Cureton Avery were presented with certificates at the bash at the city’s Mercure Rougemont Hotel.

High-flying Oliver landed the Flybe Academy Student of the Year accolade.

Dakota was presented with the Foundation Studies award.

The ceremony took place on Thursday, January 4, where winners were joined by friends and family, together with sponsors and community and business leaders.

Oliver and Dakota were among a total of 27 winners from across Devon and beyond.

The award categories covered the college’s broad spectrum of programmes, from a range of full-time and part-time programmes to apprenticeships.

Principal and chief executive of Exeter College John Laramy said this year’s award winners demonstrated ‘exceptional achievements spanning each facet of the college’s operation’.

He added: “I would like to congratulate our great students, exemplified by the award winners.”
