Pictured above from left: Aidan, Deputy Head Student; Annabelle, Head Student; Professor Yaqoob, Speech Night Guest Speaker; Mrs Stotesbury, Head; Asha, Deputy Head Student and Joseph, and Head Student.

Speech Night 2021 was a wonderful evening of inspiration and celebration as staff, pupils and their families gathered to recognise the successes of last year’s Year 11, 12 and 13.

Our Head, Mrs Stotesbury, gave a warm welcome and audiences were treated to some wonderful musical performances and an entertaining excerpt from the forthcoming production, Made in Dagenham.

The guest speaker, Professor Parveen Yaqoob, first female Deputy Vice-Chancellor at the University of Reading, gave an inspiring speech and spoke about Resilience, Responsibility and Respect.

Congratulations go to all the scholars, postelars, subject and special prize winners and thanks to those students who contributed to making the evening such a memorable one.
