FROM skills competitions to prominence in the "Dragons' Den," sporting achievement to photography, it has been success all the way for students at Henley College Coventry this year.

Skills competitions are a valuable means of extending the range and quality of learners' skills and 2015-16 was a particularly notable year for Henley College students.
