Andrea Lake, an Access student at Doncaster College has won a film review competition, which was one of a number of activities held during English and Maths week recently.


Bonnie Hodge, Deputy Principal at Doncaster College, picked Andrea’s winning entry out of a very strong field of 80 entrants and a podcast.


Andrea chose to review the 1994 film version of Frankenstein, from the gothic novel by Mary Shelley, starring Robert De Niro and directed by Kenneth Branagh.


Andrea, who hails from Selby, said, "Thank you so much! I am delighted and thrilled to win this particular competition.


"Writing the review made me think of a variety of different things about films including the backdrops and costumes, etc. and I'm going on to university to study English next year so it was a very useful exercise and the prize of high street vouchers will certainly come in handy at this time of year!"


The Film review competition was sponsored by the Learning Resource Centre, The Learning Zone and the Functional Skills Department all based at the College.


The aim of the English and Maths week was to raise awareness of the importance of good English and Maths skills for everyday life, as well the successful achievement of qualifications leading to future employment.


The winning entry and some of the other entries are on display in the Learning Resource Centre at The College's Hub campus and there will be more English and Maths activities in the New Year.
