Congratulations to all recipients.

Mr Murphy-O'Connor continued with thanking the staff who are leaving us at the end of this term. Of particular note is Mr Tom Simons, Deputy Head Academic and Maths teacher who is leaving after 26 years service to the College. The Headmaster described Mr Simons as reliable, respected, liked and a man of integrity and gravitas, in short "a thoroughly good person". Staff and students gave Mr Simons an emotional standing ovation.

We wish all our leavers every success in the future.
