Outstanding achievements in the classroom, on the sports field, in the community and on stage were celebrated at two school speech days.
Pupils from Stamford High School welcomed Jill Berry, a former head of the Dame Alice Harpur School and past president of the Girls’ Schools Association, to their celebratory event.
Dozens of pupils were joined by their parents, teachers and school governors to listen to her speech about the art of possibility before they were presented with their prizes for a full range of academic and extra-curricular activities.
Pupils at Stamford School were joined by Sir Peter Simpson, a consultant anaesthetist, for their speech day who told the boys that grit and determination are two of the most important attributes for success.
Principal of Stamford Endowed Schools, Stephen Roberts, said: “These events illustrate clearly the spirit of education at our schools. There is a culture of achievement and high expectation, and a strong desire to ensure all our pupils do well.
“I would like to thank our guest speakers and congratulate the pupils on their many accomplishments this year.”
