Sydenham High says farewell to year 13 and hello to its latest alumnae

Staff bid a fond farewell to members of year 13 and their parents at a reception and dinner held in the school’s orangery and vaulted dining hall.

At the same time Mrs Woodcock warmly welcomed the leavers into the school’s alumnae community which will give them access to the Girls’ Day School Trust’s unique network of over 70,000 like-minded women who can help and mentor them as they develop their careers.

The evening was a moving occasion as the students look forward to the next stage in their education, life at university and a bright future. Each student received a engraved pen as a leaving memento.
