The Summer Term culminates with Festival Day, an annual celebration of the achievements of the academic year. A bittersweet day as we celebrate the end of the year but also say goodbye to those embarking on the next stage of their education.
As well as the giving of academic prizes, the awarding of House trophies and the presenting of DofE and LAMDA certificates, there is entertainment from the Music and Drama Departments.
One of the highlights is often our guest speaker. Past speakers have included alumnae Mishal Husain, Sanam Naraghi Anderlini and Joseline Cluff, who each had a huge impact on the students, and quite often the staff and parents too.
The event ends – hopefully in glorious sunshine – with a quintesstential afternoon in Lady Darnley’s Garden before the summer holidays beckon.
