Graduation Ceremony 2018/19

Congratulations to students who were given a variety of awards in celebration of their achievements this year.  Awards were given for academic achievement, services to the community, excellent effort, most improvement, and progress in English.  We are very proud of all our students and their achievements.




Exploring Hereford Cathedral

Academic Preparation students and those who had finished their examinations, visited Hereford Cathedral this well to explore the tower and listen to a presentation on how the bells operate.  Hereford Cathedral is the cathedral church of the Anglican Diocese of Hereford in Hereford, England. Its most famous treasure is Mappa Mundi, a medieval map of the world created around 1300 by Richard of Holdingham. The map is listed on the UNESCO Memory of the World.

Post Examination Fun at the Safari Park
