Head of College Dr Tim Greene said: “We are really proud of our students, and what they have achieved, across all areas of College life, through their hard work and commitment over the past few years. They have become exceptional young adults.

“It is fantastic to see our students prepare for the next chapter after their time with us, some of whom started at Clifton College in the Pre-Prep or Preparatory Schools.

“We wish them all the very best for the future and hope we will be hearing lots more about their further successes in years to come.”
