The students officially left the school earlier in the day before reconvening at the Portal Hotel for the ball which included a three course meal, speeches and a disco. Organised by the Head Boy and Girl team, the evening was attended by the whole year group as well as over forty members of staff.
Many of the students were celebrating a fourteen year Grange School education, having joined the school’s Kindergarten as four year old children, whilst others chose to join at sixteen in order to reap the benefits of the Grange Sixth Form. A highlight of the evening was the presentation of a leaving gift from the students to long serving and immensely popular Deputy Head, Mr Testard.
The young people now return in June to complete their public examinations before heading off to take up exciting opportunities and places at top universities at home and abroad.
Head of Sixth Form, Mr Andrew Reeve commented: “This is a year group which is highly thought of by staff at the school and the way in which they left was emblematic of this. As a school we are very proud of our former students and they should be very proud to call themselves Grange School alumni. We wish them all the best in their examinations and beyond.”
