Class of 2022 Celebrate A Level Success
07 January 2023
Just as the School broke up for Christmas it was time to celebrate the success of the Class of 2022. Over 100 guests gathered in the Dining Hall to offer each other season’s greetings and share news and views of life beyond Aldenham. Former students and their parents were obviously delighted to see each other again, for many it was the first time since the summer. Alex Hems, Head of the Aldenham Foundation and Andy Williams, Head of Senior School, welcomed everyone back with festive food and drinks before congratulating them all and inviting 45 individual OAs to collect their hard earned A Level certificates in a presentation ceremony. After the presentation Clare Yeabsley, (K1988-90), OA Committee Member, took the opportunity to welcome new members to the OA Society and to tell them about the benefits of their alumni organisation; a network of friends, fellow students and professional contacts within a unique community who may be contacted directly or through the OA Office. Clare reminded them about events that may interest them such as the Annual OA Dinner, OA Day and other reunions that are organised locally, regionally and internationally. Formalities over it was back to eating, drinking, and socialising to continue the celebration.This event was first introduced for the Class of 2018 and after a two year gap due to COVID cancellations, it was very good to see this new Aldenham tradition back in the calendar. We now look forward to a similar event at the end of 2023.
