on the night of Wednesday 29th November. The event was an opportunity for students to reunite with friends and staff, as well as to collect their GCSE certificates and for some, further awards. Alexander Terry and Emily Wright, the former Head Boy and Head Girl, gave an excellent review on behalf of the year group. Former student, Professor John Turner, then provided an inspiring talk, reflecting on his and his friends’ lives since leaving the school 50 years ago and issuing a challenge for this cohort to become even more successful.
This year’s event was generously hosted by the University of Essex in their impressive Ivor crew Lecture Theatre. The university venue helped set the tone beautifully; celebration of academic achievement coupled with excitement for the future and pride in being a Gilberdian.
