Awards ceremony for year 11 and year 13 leavers

Back to News

On Thursday 14th September The Deepings School welcomed over 500 guests to their annual presentation evening, where the classes of 2016/17 were presented with certificates to highlight their achievements.

Many students were also awarded additional prizes to represent the whole range of subject areas, sporting achievements and work within the community.

Making the award presentations this year was special guest and renowned author Julian Sedgwick. Julian gave an inspirational address recounting his wide range of experiences as a bookseller, painter, therapist and researcher. His message was to have an enquiring mind and kind heart and not be afraid to make mistakes along the way – Julian also provided some lively entertainment with his superb knife juggling skills!

During the evening guests listened to some beautiful solo musical performances by students Lucy Gill, Claudia Stevenson and Josie Lincoln – they each performed brilliantly to an appreciative audience.

The proceedings were overseen by Deepings School Headteacher, Richard Lord and a vote of thanks and presentation to Julian was made by Head Boy and Head Girl Alexander Heatley and Isabella Oakley.

We would like to thank everyone who attended the event and helped make the evening such a success.
