The welcome speech was given by Frankie Strinati, Lakefield’s Schools Liaison Officer, Frankie started the speech by showing people photos of important events that have happened over the academic year and the life of students living and studying at Lakefield. Frankie said “You have been a pleasure to have in Lakefield. You have been the best group! (And that’s true!)”.

The awards were presented by Lisa Clapham, Director of Lakefield. The ceremony was followed by Champagne and Canapes in the garden.
