Principal, Miss Wicks, said:

“Our annual Presentation Evening commemorates five years of commitment and resilience, and celebrates everyone's achievements.  Success has been achieved not only through the hard work of students, but also with the support of staff and parents; it has been a real team effort! Their time at Wellacre has been a well-rounded and varied experience, one that has prepared these students for their chosen pathways. We wish the Class of 2018 all the best for their future.”
