Pupils at West Craven High School have shown themselves to be of the highest calibre once again as 52 won gold employability awards.

The certificate, created by the employers and education institutes of Pendle, recognises students beyond their academic performance to give an impression of them as an individual.

All of the Pendle secondary schools have offered this certificate following the consultation with local employers about what they want from their future employees.

Pupils were presented with their gold certificates at Pendle Hippodrome Theatre in Colne. The silver and bronze certificate winners will receive their awards in a special school assembly.

Achieving gold was no easy task but West Craven had the biggest number of gold award winners of any of the Pendle schools, despite being one of the smallest in the borough.

The winners are: Matthew Ainscough, Racheal Bailey, Ebony Bell, Shannon Bell, Benjamin Cox, Jonathan Davies, Reagan Driver, Connor Farley, Megan Finnigen, James Golding, Daniel Heaton, Jordan Hines, Emily Holt, Samuel Horrocks, Tilly-May Johnson, Nathan Jones, Jade Kay, Nimrah Khan, Fraser Leigh, Megan Leyland, Morgan Lomas, Kyle Lord, Aqilah Manshah, Joshua Marshall, Abigail May, Ellie McKee, Joseph Mercer, Christopher Othen, Deborah Parnell, Abigail Parry, Lex Payne, Beth Pepper, Samantha Pilkington, Amelia Pollard, Tasmin Preston, Chelsea Reynolds, Christopher Richardson, Oliver Robertson, Caitlin Scarlett, Chloe Smith, Jessica Smith, Zachary Smith, Jordon Thornber, Abbie Thornton, Amber Tinsley, Emma-Jane Towers, Rory Towers, Jonathan Uttley, Emma Wallbank, Thomas Whipp, Mikenzi Williams, Lewis Wilson.
