As usual, the Senior Formal, being the last school event for all Year 13s and a number of Year 11s, was a bittersweet affair. It’s never easy to say goodbye to friends who have shared the trials and tribulations of the IB Diploma, those who have supported, encouraged and simply been there through countless sleepless nights prior to various deadlines, presentations and examinations.
Mr. Walton gave an illuminating speech highlighting the range of nationalities we have in the school and tying this in with the forthcoming Olympic Games in London. It was important not to forget the Year 11s who are leaving the school and Mr. McCabe followed Mr. Walton with a speech wishing his year group well in the next stage of their education whether continuing at The Regent’s School or elsewhere.

The highlight of the speeches, however, was Harry Webb who gave a heartfelt and touching speech about the Year 13 cohort. As usual both boys and girls were dressed to impress and the function room and food added to the atmosphere of the evening. The student bands who played performed very well and it was with some sadness that the realisation dawned that this was the last opportunity for Ralf, Naufal and Uh Sang to perform at a school function. They approached this with their usual preparedness and professionalism!
A thousand photo opportunities later, many tears, hundreds of handshakes and all the well wishing we could muster brought the evening to a close.
