Graduation Evenings 2017
Trinity School Senior Graduation Evening
On Thursday, 7th September we were delighted to welcome Year 11 and Year 13 students, with their parents and carers, to celebrate their achievements at a Graduation Ceremony for each year group at Carlisle Cathedral. All students were awarded a certificate of achievement to celebrate their success in either GCSE or A Level examinations, and to mark the end of an important stage of their school life. In addition some special awards were made, either for outstanding progress across all subjects, a consistently strong work ethic, or service to others.
The Y13 Graduation Evening was particularly poignant as this was the last time the year group would gather together formally. It was great to hear about examination successes and to hear about the destination for each student, ranging from universities such as Oxford, Durham and Newcastle to higher level apprenticeships at or employment. As well as the awards outlined above there were some traditional School Prizes. These included the Prescott Prize for Head Girl, awarded to Lily Wilson, the School Medal for Head Boy, awarded to Sam Ling, and the Simon Armstrong Award for outstanding service to the school which was awarded to Henry Taylor.
We were fortunate to have Professor Julie Mennell, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cumbria, as guest speaker at both ceremonies.
