Rockcliffe Hall in County Durham was the venue for a Champagne reception and dinner to celebrate the last term for Cundall Manor School’s GCSE pupils.

More than 120 pupils from the co-educational independent school near Dishforth joined teachers and parents for the evening.

Drinks were served on the terrace followed by a three-course dinner hosted by the school and organised by the head of Upper School, Sara Hall.

Memories of past years were rekindled as the diners were played a video showing the pupils from their pre-prep years to current times. There was also a speech by headmaster John Sample and a vote of thanks from the head girl and head boy.

The departing pupils will be leaving in July to go to schools and sixth form colleges throughout the region for their A-Levels and further education.

Cundall Manor School is rated by OFSTED as among the top 11 per cent in the UK. It has more than 350 pupils, aged from two-and-a-half to 16-years-old.
