On Thursday 7 June 2018, we were delighted to welcome a number of schools, agents, guardians and parents to the College’s Graduation Ceremony 2018.  Graduation has become one of the highlights of the College’s academic year and this year was no exception!

Before the official proceedings commenced, we were delighted to welcome representatives from a number of the College’s destination and partner schools, including Bradfield College, Downside School, King Edward’s School Witley, Kingswood School, Lime House School, Monkton Combe School, Oundle School, Mill Hill International, Westonbirt School and Wycliffe College, plus Stephen Ilett, Headmaster of Port Regis School, who had kindly agreed to be our Guest Speaker.

We then made the short walk to Bishopstrow Church, to enjoy a combination of speeches from Lorraine Atkins, Principal and Stephen Ilett, followed by the awards presentation.  All c.60 students leaving the College at the end of Term 3 were presented with a Leaver’s Certificate and a number of other academic, boarding and sports awards were presented, including Boarder of the Year, Sportswoman and Sportsman of the Year and Most Improved Sportsman and Sportswoman.  Special congratulations to Elizaveta Grivnyak who was presented with the coveted Principal’s Award.  Liza has recently completed Bishopstrow’s 1 Year IGCSE Programme and will be joining King’s School Canterbury in September.

We then returned to the College to enjoy a hog roast BBQ supper and entertainment in the form of music and drama, presented by a number of the students.  Congratulations to all award winners and good luck to all those students who graduated from the College.
