Congratulations to Wadham students who have been awarded named College prizes following outstanding performance in their studies.

Postponed exams meant a delay in awarding some of the prizes but the majority have been conferred including one prize which was divided between 13 History finalists who all gained first class degrees.  

“A pleasure to teach”, “outstanding”, “enthusiastic”, “engaged”, “creative”, “motivated” and “perceptive” are some of the terms used to describe the performance and attitude of this group of exceptional students. 

Named College prizes are awarded thanks to generous donations from Wadham academics, alumni and friends.
