THE next generation of performers, artists, sportsmen, carers and businessmen took the next step to realising their ambitions on Tuesday.

Priestley College student were able to get their hands on their BTEC results but some still have a little longer to wait to find out if their hard work has paid off.

Deputy principal Matthew Grant said: “We’re very proud of their achievements in what has been another great year for our BTEC students.

“There has been success across the board and no doubt these young people are going on to even greater achievements.”

Among the greatest achievements at Priestley this year were more than 20 offers from top theatre schools to the college’s performing and production arts students.
