Speech Day 2016

Thank you to everyone who came to our annual Speech Day. Following a catch up on the busy school year, some farewell speeches, the presentation of many prizes and a thought-provoking speech from Jennifer Lonsdale OBE, co-founder of the Environmental Investigation Agency, it was time to make the most of the sunshine and enjoy a picnic and afternoon tea out on the lawn.

More photos from the day will be posted soon.

The sun comes out for Speech Day

For the most part this term the weather has been cold, grey and decidedly wet. There have been drenched sporting spectators, cancelled matches, soggy teddy bears and plenty of waterlogged wellies at the recent picnic concert. However, as if to celebrate the end of term, the summer finally decided to put in an appearance for Speech Day on the 4th July.

Following a catch up on the busy school year, some emotional farewell speeches, the presentation of countless prizes and an inspirational speech from The Venerable Jan McFarlane, Archdeacon of Norwich, it was finally time for everyone to make the most of the sunshine and enjoy a picnic and afternoon tea out on the lawn.
