On 6th February 2022, Her Majesty the Queen became the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years of service to the people of the United Kingdom, the Realms and the Commonwealth.

To celebrate this unprecedented anniversary, events and initiatives will take place throughout the year, culminating in a four day UK bank holiday weekend from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June.

On Friday 27th May learners at college participated in a range of activities to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee prior to the half term holidays. Celebrations involved: 

  • A ‘dress down’ day wearing red, white or blue clothing
  • Decorating the college in range of Union Jack and patriotic decorations
  • Participating in a range of traditional lawn games
  • Enjoying an English anthem themed karaoke
  • A buffet lunch

 Learners had a fantastic afternoon celebrating with their peers. Celebrating the Queen's Platinum Jubilee has supported the learners to increase their understanding of British Values.
