On the final Friday of November the school held its annual Founder’s Day – an event to celebrate the school’s founder, Reverend William Rogers, and the achievements of its students.
During the ceremony, the Chamber Orchestra performed the 1st movement from Johann Stamitz’s Sinfonia with members of the London Mozart Players.
Awards were presented to pupils across the school to recognise their hard work and achievement throughout the year. Pupils were awarded prizes for both attainment and progress in each subject. The highest overall achiever in attainment and progress were awarded for each Year group. After this, a series of special prizes were awarded for extra-curricular achievement and community involvement before the most senior awards were announced.
The Bendy Scholarship was awarded to the top performing A Level students who go on to study engineering at university. The Dr Beck Scholarship for exceptional progress was awarded to students in the lower school, upper school and sixth form.
Additional special prizes awarded were The John Boston Scholarship for exceptional attainment and The Montcalm Scholarship for achievement in vocational learning.
