Barton Peveril hosted their annual Sports Awards on Wednesday 9th May, to congratulate students on their many individual and team successes this academic year. The ceremony, which took place in the College’s Rose Theatre, celebrated a diverse range of accomplishments; those who represented Great Britain and those who were outstanding in college competitions were among the winners.
37 students were praised during the event for their individual successes, both inside and outside of college competitions.

Barton Peveril’s various team successes were also rewarded throughout the event, from the ‘This Girl Can’ ambassadors multiple campaigns to the players’ and managers’ player of the year awards. The men’s football teams were not only awarded on the night, but also in their separate leagues and competitions. The 1st Team won the Hampshire Colleges Championship League and were unbeaten all season, the 2nd Team won the Hampshire Colleges League 2 and the 3rd Team were the Hampshire Colleges League 3 winners.
Director of Sport and Physical Education, Luke Hampton, said: “This evening was a great opportunity to showcase the students who excelled in sport this year and for us to show how proud we are of them. The range and variety of sports and disciplines celebrated this evening is fantastic. Events like this highlight how dedicated our students are to sport, both as part of their studies and as extra-curricular activities.”
We cannot wait to see what these sports stars achieve next.
