Rowing star at Bishop Burton Presentation Day

Rowing great Sir Steve Redgrave CBE, who won gold medals at five consecutive Olympic Games, said students at Bishop Burton College have been given the perfect platform to pursue their dreams. Sir Steve, who triumphed at the Olympics from 1984 to 2000 to cement his place in history as one of the country’s greatest every athletes, was a special guest at the college’s Presentation Day.

More than 2,000 students received certificates after successfully completing their further education courses. Prize-winning students who excelled in their studies also received trophies and plaques.

Sir Steve told them they were at the start of an exciting journey: “It is about hard work you put in and that drive. It is about passion and desire. The more you put in, the more you get out.

“To all of the successful students here today – some of you are still continuing with your studies, whilst some of you are going out into what some people call the big, bad world. What I would say to you is this – dig deep and focus on what you want to do. Make sure you achieve what you want to achieve.”
