The Apprentice 2016 winner Alana Spencer has visited Park Community School to speak to students and hand out awards

Park Community School had a guest of honour for its GCSE awards presentation on Wednesday.

Alana Spencer, winner of The Apprentice last year, presented students with their awards.

She gave an inspirational talk to the guests, encouraging the ex-students to follow their dreams, not to procrastinate and to ‘go for it’.

This has clearly worked well for Alana as she is currently developing her business in partnership with Lord Alan Sugar.

Headteacher Gareth Roscoe added “It was great to see the school hall full of our ex- students, spending time reflecting on their progress and development during their time at Park.

“They have achieved highly and are a credit to themselves, their parent/carers and the school.”

Alana added: “It was a lovely evening and so wonderful to see so many students collecting awards and celebrating their exam success.”
