Speech Day 2019

On Friday 13th September the school celebrated the successes of its student body at our annual Speech Day.

With the junior event taking place in the morning and the senior event after lunch, hundreds of gathered students, parents and guests were able to enjoy the speeches and musical items and celebrate the students’ success. The event commenced with Chair of Governors, Mr Martin Day, welcoming the guests.  Both events were accompanied by superb performances by the First Orchestra and excellent speeches by the Head Boy and Girl, Jack McGee and Yasmin Homer.  Mr Sutherland addressed the audience and paid tribute to those receiving prizes. The school was honoured to have the company of our two guest speakers. The Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire, Robert Voss, CBE, addressed the audience and presented the prizes at Junior Speech Day, and Old Dane, Clinical Psychologist Vaan Livermore-Hardy spoke and presented the prizes at Senior Speech Day.

As the day came to a close, the winner of the prestigious Poppleton Prize for service to the school was announced- this year to Charlotte Hales.  The day came to a close with the First Orchestra’s second rendition of the National Anthem.
