Celebrations began with a morning service at St. Cyprian's Church, where Mr Fillingham addressed staff and students. Afterwards, the eldest and youngest girls assisted our Head Girl with the cake cutting ceremony.

Following the service at St. Cyprian's, students performed in the annual Inter-Form Drama Competition, with guest judges alumna and actor Rafaela Elliston and actor Tessa Peake-Jones. 

In the evening, we held our Parent, Pupil and Alumni Concert, where the music of Ralph Vaughan Williams was performed.
