South Wilts’ 82nd Annual Speech Day

On Wednesday 16th September we celebrated our 82nd annual Speech day at Salisbury Cathedral. The evening began with a wine reception for prize winner's parents and guests at Bishop Wordsworths Dining Hall before moving into the spectacular Cathedral. The ceremony began with a traditional rendition of the school song, following by an outstanding performance by the Senior Choir.

The guest speaker for the evening was Professor Anne Curry, the Head of Humanities at Southampton University, who made a thought provoking speech focusing on her interest in medieval History and making many links to education and South Wilts. The Head Teacher's speech made reference to the school's outstanding examination results and the building of the new Learning Resources Centre. In addition several brave students spoke during the Head's speech about innovative projects in Food Technology, Learning Walks, the new LRC and the History battlefields trip.

The focus of the evening was the prize-giving in which students were awarded prizes for Achievement, Commitment and Community service in all years of the school. We also welcomed back our leavers onto the stage to celebrate their achievements. The evening was a great success and was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
