GCSE Presentation Evening 2018
On Wednesday 28th November the class of 2018 were invited back to Testbourne Community School to be presented with their GCSE certificates.
This was a lovely occasion for students to catch up with friends, meet their former teachers and share experiences of college so far. There were numerous awards presented throughout the evening which included subject awards as well as the Governor’s award for effort, which went to Sam Crofts, and the prestigious Headteacher’s award, which went to Lydia Coleman. Other awards went to Head Boy and Girl, Jack Routledge and Abigail Sarginson respectively, Alice Griggs for progress, Molly Glendon for attendance and Gemma Bailey for achievement.
There were over 450 people at the formal awards ceremony, including the mayor and mayoress of Whitchurch and some of our local councillors. An inspiring and thought-provoking speech was delivered by Tim Fisher on his experiences working as a consul for the Foreign Office. There was a stunning vocal performance from ex-student Tori Lowther who is studying Music Theatre at READ college. Mr James Lovegrove, Assistant Headteacher, compered the evening and he was delighted that so many of our ex-students turned up looking so smart and stayed at the end to chat to staff and parents.
Mrs Gray, Assistant Headteacher, who organised the event commented, “It’s a fantastic celebration of the efforts our students put in over the last few years. The glass awards are something for them to treasure for years to come and to remember their achievements.”
