Prep School Speech Day 2019
Prep School Speech Day is a time of celebration and recognition for all the hard work from pupils, staff and families over the last academic year. Mrs K Neaves, Senior Deputy Head of Prep School, reflected on the year with a speech about being kind and thinking carefully before you speak. Mrs Neaves also announced the new officials for the next academic year, with Oliver Beck as Head Boy and Liberty Hoyles as Head Girl. The House Cup was closely contested, with Clarkson declared the winners, by just one point. The final words of the day were summed up in a quote from Winnie the pooh… “Be bold enough to use your voice, brave enough to listen to your heart and strong enough to live the life you’ve always imagined.” The full round-up of Speech day can be found on our news section of the website.

Employability, Success and Happiness were the key messages at Senior School Speech Day for pupils at WGS.
Senior School Speech Day on Friday 5 July, was an opportunity for the Headmaster, special guests, staff and pupils to reflect on and celebrate last year’s successes and to pass the baton to the next generation.
Dr Catherine Mair BSc, BVetMed, MRCVS, School Governor and Chair Elect, welcomed everyone and paid tribute to Dr Dennis Barter, Chairman of Governors, who was sadly unable to attend. Dr Mair reflected on the number of exciting projects the School is undertaking within a tight, seven month deadline. She recognised the excellent work of the teaching staff, and celebrated the success of every pupil.
The School was very proud to welcome as Guest of Honour, Dr Gemma Witcomb – Lecturer in Psychology with a First Class degree from Loughborough (1998) and the Sir Robert Martin faculty prize for Outstanding Academic Achievement. Dr Witcomb now teaches the Loughborough BSc undergraduate Psychology degree, covering Developmental and Social Psychology, The Psychology of Eating Behaviour, Clinical Psychology, and Parenting and Socialisation.
Dr Witcomb presented prizes for outstanding performances, academic success, community service, sports, performing arts and many more. The Russell Hall was filled with a sense of pride and achievement.
