Magdalen College School in Brackley held its annual certificate and awards evening last week with the help of Jane Powell – world class cricket player, coach and 2012 Olympic champion hockey coach to name but a few of her accolades.

She was awarded an Honorary Doctorate for services to British Sport in 2013.

Ms Powell, who has recently been appointed as a governor at the school, presented students past and present with their A-level, GCSE and Duke of Edinburgh awards and certificates.
