The event let families, students and staff celebrate the GCSE achievements of the year group in style.

Students wearing red gowns and mortar boards received diplomas to commemorate their time at Venture, and to recognise the passing of one phase of their education to another.

Principal Simon Gilbert-Barnham said: ”It was a real pleasure to see our class of 2017 formally graduate as Venture alumni. We are so proud of them and the exciting futures they are embarking on – they’ve all grown into such exceptional young adults.”

The academy operates an alumni programme which enables students to share successes and continue to be positive role models within the academy. Former students who want support are urged to get in touch.
