Graduation: Class of 2021 leave Year 11 in style

On Thursday 24th June, our Year 11 students and ‘Class of 2021’ celebrated their end of Key Stage 4 milestone with a beautiful graduation ceremony and reception.

Upon arrival, students were gifted with a ‘Class of 2021’ sash, a bracelet with their initials designed by Ms Smyth and a copy of the No.1 International Bestseller ‘Belonging’ by Former First Lady Mrs Michelle Obama.

As students made their way to their seats, a photo presentation with highlights capturing the last five years played in the background. There were pictures from the History trip to Belgium, student presentations for the Bank of America Business workshops and pictures of our incredible Business Enterprise winners who came second in the Princes’ Trust Regional Finals.

The ceremony opened with a welcome speech from Dr Mundy and a Head of Year speech by Ms Asare. Tutors delivered heart felt speeches about their form groups. Their stories brought back many fond memories, some laughter, some tears and lots of applauses.

Every single student was recognised during the ceremony and awarded a certificate from the following categories in our Leaders of the Future Awards: Creativity, Confidence, Leadership, Love of Learning and Outstanding Achievement.

Our Head Girl, Mysha Rahman from 11B captivated our audience once again with her amazing speech about the journey that students have taken thus far.

Finally our CEO and Headteacher, Dr Vanessa Ogden, left students with an empowering message and a reminder that ‘once a Mulberry girl, always a Mulberry girl’.

We are extremely proud of our Year 11 students and all that they have achieved. We wish them all the best in their endeavours at Post-16 and look forward to hearing about their accomplishments.
