The annual Presentation Evening celebrates the whole year group and honours individual success not only with their GCSE certificates but also for those standing out in the classroom, on the field or on stage. 

The proceedings began with Head Boy George welcoming guests with a speech about the well deserved occasion of celebration for this year group, and the great sense of community and support that benefitted them at Wellacre.
