Celebrating Success 2021: Kimberley France  

Art & Design Student of the Year
Kimberley France  

Kimberley, from Basildon, studied Level 3 Art & Design (3D Design) at the college’s Southend campus. 

Kimberley was nominated for the award for her exceptional work, development and skill in a number of areas.

Tutors praised her for her dedication which meant she completed each unit with a distinction grade.

They said: “She has been a credit to the Art and Design department and has an exciting career ahead.

Kimberley said she was very grateful and surprised to have won.

She said: “It's so nice of the college to recognise their students and show that they know how hard everyone works during their time here. 

“The best part about being here I've found is that anyone is welcoming and happy to help, tutors and students alike. 

“The course allows for a lot of practical work, which is really fun because I got to try different machines and materials a lot. The college is also a very sociable place, you can interact with a lot of different people. In the art department you get to see others work a lot which is great.” 

Kimberley is now going to university in the hope of pursuing her dream of becoming an architect.
