The evening commenced with touching speeches from Headmistress, Mrs Woodcock, Head of Sixth Form, Mr Gridelli and outgoing Head Girl, Saskia, who all reflected on the cohort’s remarkable impact on FHS throughout their school careers. Mrs Woodcock and Mr Gridelli encouraged the girls to embrace the challenges that lay ahead with confidence and optimism, reminding them of the strong foundations they had built at Francis Holland. Susanne Nedas, Chair of Quondam, then welcomed girls as life-long members of our treasured Alumni Association, reassuring them the friendships and memories they have made at FHS will stay with them ad infinitum.

This was followed by the awarding of our Upper Sixth academic and special prizes to celebrate the girls’ various achievements in academics, extracurricular activities, and contributions to the School community.

Following the Prize-Giving ceremony, students, parents and staff then gathered in the playground for a delightful evening drinks reception, after which students headed to the Hall to dance the night away.

What a wonderful way to celebrate such a brilliant cohort who will be sorely missed. We wish them the very best of luck as they depart FHS for their exciting futures, and we can’t wait to welcome them back as treasured Francis Holland alumnae.
