The guest speaker was Kathryn Bell, Headmistress from Burgess Hill School for Girls, who gave an inspirational speech.

A buffet was provided after the presentation where staff, past students and parents could spend some time catching up and updating each other on how things are going since leaving the College.

Assistant Headteacher, Ms Katie Stanton, said: “This is an evening that I, and staff, always look forward to. A lovely event where examination success can be recognised and celebrated. It is always so nice to catch up with past students, reflect on the good times and renew friendships that may already have become more distant.”
