2016 Leavers' Evening

The class of 2016 gathered at Nawaab Restaurant last Wednesday to celebrate their examination results and receive their certificates.

The evening began as the Headteacher, Ian Fenn introduced the Lord Mayor of Manchester, Carl Austin-Behan, who is also on the school’s governing body. Prizes were then handed out from each faculty area, and finally, House Leaders gave a few words about their ‘Best in House’.

Everyone was then treated to a delicious three-course meal as well as the use of a photo-booth that was fully equipped with entertaining props.

It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening and all attendees left with smiles on their faces and full stomachs. It was a pleasure to be part of and the school wishes all students the best for their futures. We look forward to hearing their success stories in the coming years.

A gallery of images from the evening can be accessed here.
