Welcoming back former students

On Friday 14th December 2018 we hosted a “leavers lunch” for the St Philip’s School alumni. 15 ex-students returned to catch up with staff and current students and share their news. Zac, second from the left, has been very busy since leaving St Philip’s in 2016. He is now driving and has four jobs including landscape gardening; he couldn’t believe how much the school has changed. Jade, furthest on the right, left 15 years ago, she now has three children and is engaged to be married this year.

The alumni members all had fantastic stories to tell and the current students benefited from hearing their journeys and thinking about what the future may hold.

Please check the website for the next leavers lunch dates.

Students develop very high levels of positive behaviour and feel extremely safe. They are very considerate, very respectful and caring of others and highly positive about learning.
