Celebrations, applause and emotions were on the agenda for this year’s Prep Speech Day as we welcomed pupils, family, and friends to celebrate the achievements of another fantastic year. During the afternoon we also said fond farewells to our Year 6, to who we wish every success in their ventures up to Senior School, and to our superb Head of Prep, Sarah Patterson.
Addressing Sarah, the Head, Andy Johnson said, “Your genius in this school has been to generate this love, and an amazing sense of warmth and family. That is precious at any time, but has been perhaps all the more important and valuable over the last two years when so much else in so many people’s lives has been so disrupted. It is a rare and precious achievement. I can see it, I feel it here today, and it will be a powerful legacy that you leave. I have no doubt you will create it to the benefit of so many children in the next chapter of your life too, for which we all wish you the very, very best.
“We thank you, we wish you well, and we know that you leave this school both greatly enhanced, and in tremendously safe hands.”
