Presentation Evening 2023

28th November 2023

Our annual Presentation Evening is the highlight of our year as we celebrate the achievements of our students, both past and present.

To begin the evening the audience was treated to a performance of “Take Five” by Dave Brubeck played by Molly K on saxophone. Mrs Elliott, our Headteacher welcomed everyone and started the proceedings. Awards for progress and achievement were handed out to our current students followed by our second musical performance "Sonata in C no.10 K330 (exposition of first movement)" by Mozart, played on the piano by Oliver S. The GCSE examination certificates were presented to last year’s Year 11 students. Then followed special awards for each subject which were given to students whose enthusiasm and determination shone through and finally the special awards for ‘Exceptional Contribution to School Life in Year 7’ which went to Oscar R, the ‘Award for Special Achievement’ was presented to Eleanor S, the ‘Award for Contribution to School Life’ was given to Rueben S and the ‘Headteacher's Award for Outstanding Achievement’ was received by Divyan R. To round the evening off, we were treated to a performance of "Lost Boy" by Ruth B sung by Charlotte S.

Our hosts for the evening were our newly appointed Head Students – Rebecca C and Charlotte S who did an excellent job assisted by Ellie R and Ben S. We were honoured to have former student and Senior Performance Analyst for GB Boxing, Jess Smith as our guest speaker who told us about her interesting journey of success from leaving Old Buckenham High School to where she is today.

Well done to everyone who received awards on the evening. Thanks go to everyone involved with the planning and preparation of the evening.

For any leavers who were unable to attend, certificates are available to pick up in person from the school office. If you would like to nominate someone to pick them up on your behalf, please email
