Congratulations to all of our students graduating this Spring.

In line with government advice on limiting public gatherings at the current time, we have taken the decision to host your graduation ceremony virtually, so that you can celebrate your achievements without delay.

The ceremony has been designed to provide a fitting opportunity for you, your family and friends and our staff, to celebrate your achievements. We would love as many of you as possible to join and watch on the day.

Details about how you and your family and friends can attend will be emailed to you and included on our website nearer the time.

All eligible students will receive their invitation between February and March 2021.
