On Friday, November 20, Uppingham Community College hosted the annual Year 11 Presentation Evening when Year 11 pupils returned to receive their GCSE certificates and awards.
The guest of honour this year was Chloe Ward, brand director of Joules Clothing, an international market leader in clothes design and distribution, with an annual turnover in excess of £117m.
The evening also included musical presentations from the college band and an address given by Geoff Thompson, chairman of Governors.
Representatives of the local community groups also attended, along with parents and relatives, to congratulate the many successes of this year group.
Principal Jan Turner said: “It was wonderful to see so many students returning for this annual celebration and they have all gone on to further study in many different areas.”
