5th December 2019
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 “Freddy My Love“ by Lily B, Alice O, Annabel M and Elena M from our upcoming musical, Grease. Mr Fell welcomed everyone and started the proceedings. Awards for progress and achievement were handed out followed by GCSE examination certificates which were distributed 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 Bethany W, the ‘Award for Special Achievement’ was presented to Tegan Leigh H, the ‘Award for Contribution to School Life’ was given to Alfie J and the ‘Headteacher's Award for Outstanding Achievement’ was received by Daniel P.
Our hosts for the evening were our newly appointed Head Boy and Head Girl – Aaron D and Annabel M who did an excellent job assisted by their deputies. The guest speaker was the CEO of the Sapientia Education Trust, Mr Jonathan Taylor.
There were also performances by George P who sang “Sandy” from Grease, and, as a special treat, George C and Dylan I returned to sing “You’re Timeless To Me” from Hairspray.
