At the first of this year’s extended research project evening, current Year 13 students presented their findings to a packed auditorium of specialists and professionals in their field, alongside parents and Senior School girls. They gave articulate and accomplished presentations including a moving film from Vietnam. Each of the Sixth Formers answered probing questions from the floor which demonstrated a breathtaking degree of composure and presence. An immensely proud staff were there to support and applaud all the students taking part. We look forward to our next evening!
