Every year we congratulate our Year 11 leavers on their recent exam achievements and also celebrate some truly exceptional and inspirational students in younger years.
We were very pleased to welcome Libby Purves OBE as our guest speaker.
After obtaining a first-class degree in English at Oxford, Libby went on to present shows on BBC Radio 4 as well as a number of documentaries and became chief theatre critic for the Times. She has also written a number of books and sailed 1700 miles around the coast of Britain! Needless to say, Mrs Purves’ speech was amusing and interesting and very inspirational.
The evening was rounded off with a musical item from our upcoming show ‘We Will Rock You’ performed by Sam and Ellie-Jean and the WWRY Band, and was a wonderful chance to say goodbye and good luck to last year’s cohort.
Special thanks go to Mrs Peel for organising the whole event and to Mrs Grunbaum, Mrs Tingey and Mrs Bradshaw for their work behind the scenes.
