Mrs Sharrock said

“It was wonderful to see the boys back at Wellacre, alongside their families, and to hear parents’ appreciation for all the work staff do and the opportunities that Wellacre has provided for them. We are so proud of everything the Class of 2021 have achieved and how they are embracing opportunities for the future.”
