Sixth Form Academic Scholars enjoyed a fabulous evening of fine dining and wine tasting at the Sixth Form Scholars’ Formal. This black-tie event provided the students with a highly enjoyable opportunity to familiarise themselves with the etiquette of a formal dinner. For the Upper Sixth students, it was also a welcome celebration following their mock examinations.
The Catering Team produced a spectacular five-course meal, including a delicious beef brisket main and a very popular chocolate truffle dessert as Mr Wilson shared his expertise on the various wines paired with each dish. Dee (Lower Sixth, Gascoigne) and Rohana (Lower Sixth, Queen Anne) entertained the diners with poetry readings while Marit (Lower Sixth, Feilden) played a delightful contemporary piano piece. A highlight of the evening was the duet sung by Dr Oldham and Mr Blank, who impressed all with their sparkling performance.
