18 May 2019
The class of 2019 had their graduation ceremony in the gym on Friday 17 May. Earlier in the day there was the now traditional fancy dress water fight followed by barbecue, bouncy castle, signing of journals before pupils headed home to prepare for the graduations. Memories, speeches, photos and amazing musical performances combined for a wonderful and emotional evening for pupils, staff, parents and guardians. After the presentation of certificates and final parts of the ceremony, everyone went to the canteen for a finger food and drinks reception. Thanks to Max Fulham for a selection of photographs from the night.
