Open Evening Speeches 2023
Open Evening Speeches: October 2023
At the start of October, we held our annual Open Evening for families of our prospective students. The flagship event was a tremendous success, much of which was down to the extraordinary support from our current students. In total, an incredible 200 students (1/5 of our student population) supporting us in a number of different roles. Some of our senior students represented us as tour guides and did a fantastic job showing our guests around the academy. Also, several students from across all year groups, supported staff within departments, talking about the different subjects and helping with the live practical demonstrations. A special thank you must go to our two Year 7 students and our Head Girl and Head Boy, who presented speeches to a packed hall of around 400 visitors - all chairs were filled, and there was literally standing room only at the back of the hall!
If you were unable to make the event, we have recorded the speeches for you below… Enjoy!
