At Fulston Manor’s annual Presentation Evening, on Thursday 15th September, staff, students, parents and guests of honour gathered to celebrate the outstanding success of those receiving certificates and awards.  With a record-breaking number of students going on to University, there was certainly cause for celebration and everyone in attendance expressed their pride in what had been achieved. 

At Fulston Manor’s annual Presentation Evening, on Thursday 15th September, staff, students, parents and guests of honour gathered to celebrate the outstanding success of those receiving certificates and awards.  With a record-breaking number of students going on to University, there was certainly cause for celebration and everyone in attendance expressed their pride in what had been achieved. 

The Guest of Honour for the evening was James Brabazon, a well-known author and documentary film maker.  Not content with simply awarding prizes on the evening, James has made an extremely generous donation in order to establish a story writing competition for students at the school and, before the ceremony on Thursday, ran a writing workshop for many of those entering this contest.  In his speech James emphasised the importance of the arts in ensuring an all round education for everyone, a message that is extremely well reflected through the Fulston Manor curriculum. 

The most poignant moment of the night came with the awarding of the Sophie Lintott prize to the student whose personality and general characteristics reflected the spirit of the school’s original motto ‘may they learn the art of friendship’.  Sophie was a student at the school who died tragically and whose parents established this award in her memory.  Congratulations should of course go to all award winners and everyone else who received examination certificates and commendations.
