Thursday night saw the Graduation Service and Ceremony for Brighton College Upper Sixth Leavers – the formal event to mark their departure from the College, in advance of the informal festivities of the Leavers’ Ball at the Hilton Metropole on Friday evening. Family, friends and staff crowded into the Chapel to celebrate the achievements of each and every member of the Upper Sixth, punctuated with some humorous and engaging reminiscence, provided by Theo Bunce and Emma Langmead.

The Close Harmony group provided some exceptionally atmospheric musical accompaniment, and the Guest of Honour (and our retiring Second Master), Mr Simon Smith, provided some sage advice for the leavers to take with them as they enter the world beyond these gates – ranging from a plea to “be true to yourself”, to a reminder that all civilised citizens reply to invitations to social occasions!

An emotional Goodbye was celebrated in style, and here at the Old Brightonians we warmly welcome our latest members.
