Memories cherished at Upper Sixth Leavers’ Mass

Upper Sixth students gathered in St George's College Chapel today (12 May) in one of the most emotional events of the year to celebrate their Leavers' Mass.

Today marks the last day when all Upper Sixth students are on site together, before they all head off for study leave before their important A Level exams later this term.

Father Martin Ashcroft, the College Chaplain and a member of the School’s Josephite community, celebrated a very moving Mass whilst the School Captains and other students took part in the readings and choral singing. The Headmistress, Deputy Heads and Sixth Form tutors were also in full attendance. 

During the service there was two incredibly moving performances. First up, one of the Sixth Form girls sang a beautiful cover of pop song 'I Lived' accompanied by a Sixth Form boy on guitar which drew rapturous applause before another student performed Oasis' 'Wonderwall' which his fellow students joined in with. These were touching moments for all present.

The students were then clapped and cheered out of the Chapel by their teachers and tutors who formed a guard of honour.
