One sixth form in Ipswich experienced the glitz and glamour of Hollywood with its own red carpet event last week for its film students.
The ‘Rosscars’ ceremony, named after media lecturer Ross Barrett, aims to recognise the work of students with 12 awards handed out in categories such as progression and games design.
Mr Barrett said: “The event was all about recognising achievement and celebrating successes. We’ve had students who have come to us at the start of their course having never touched a camera before and now they are making short films. It’s inspiring.”
The overall student of the year gong went to Alfie Vaughan, 18, from Holbrook, who is targeting a career at Weta Digital – one of the companies behind the Lord of the Rings films.
He said: “It was a massive surprise and it goes to show that the teachers appreciate my work which means a lot to me.”
