The winner of the WCF - Top Practical Student Award at Plumpton College in 2018 was Thomas Marsh, a Level 3 student and a farmer’s son from the Isle of Wight.

The citation from his teachers was glowing: ‘His commitment to his routines was outstanding, missing only one single session during his time at Plumpton, and this only because he was away representing the College at a shooting competition, which he won. He was always punctual and engaged in all practical sessions with enthusiasm and a strong willingness to learn. He has also been very helpful on the College farm, taking on extra duties in his spare time and is highly regarded by the farm and teaching staff for his practical abilities.’

The shooting competition mentioned in the citation was the National BASC clay shoot, which Plumpton duly won with Tom was ‘top gun’. The team, led by Tom, also won the Oxford Gun Company competition, with Tom again the number one marksman. Could he be drafted-in to the WCF team, as our special weapon, at the Inter-Livery competition one wonders?
