The annual Celebration of Achievement is one of the highlights of the college year and provides a wonderful opportunity for students to celebrate their achievements with their friends, relatives and college staff.

In early June, eligible students will receive an official invitation letter. The letter will include the time of the ceremony and instructions on how to hire the gown. It will also include information about buying additional tickets for friends and relatives. There is no limit to the number of friends and relatives that can attend the ceremony.

On the day, there will an official photography service available for individuals plus all students are invited to attend the group photograph located on the steps of the Guildhall.
