Sam Paterson Award
The Sam Paterson Award was established back in 2014 to commemorate the sudden and unexpected death of Varndean College Drama tutor, Sam Paterson. Set up by Sam's father, Ian Paterson, each year a sum of £500 is awarded to a student who upon completion of their course is judged by Varndean College to have made the most of their opportunity to fulfil their potential.
