Speech Day

Speech Day at both the Prep and Senior School is a celebration of all the remarkable achievements from the academic year gone by.

It is a time for parents, pupils, students and staff to come together, to reflect, to commend those who are awarded prizes for sustained attainment and for commitment and effort throughout the year and to prepare our leavers for the next stage in their lives.

Senior Speech Day 2019

Parents, friends and pupils gathered in the Sir Ben Ainslie Sports Centre on Friday 5 July to celebrate all of the remarkable achievements from the academic year.

This year, we welcomed guest speaker and Truro School Alumni, Tim Just, Head of Space at UK Research and Innovation, alongside The Headmaster, Mr Andrew Gordon-Brown and Chairman of Governors, Mr Kim Conchie.

Students from each year group were awarded prizes for sustained attainment and for commitment and effort throughout the year. School prizes were awarded to excellent ambassadors, all of whom demonstrate great commitment and achievement in their fields.

Prep Speech Day 2019

Offshore and ocean sailor Susie Goodall joined our Year 3 to 6 pupils, their families and friends to celebrate the children’s endeavours, aspirations and achievements at this year’s Prep Speech Day.

The Welcome was given by Kim Conchie, Chair of Governors and the Opening Prayer by Andrew Gordon-Brown, Headmaster. Sarah Patterson, Head of Prep, then delivered her reflection on the year gone by before distributing prizes alongside Guest Speaker Susie Goodall, who talked about the importance of embracing new chapters in her inspirational speech. Billy S then expressed the vote of thanks before a final blessing by Reverend Aubin de Gruchy.
