Former pupils from Ribblesdale High were invited to The Grand in Clitheroe to receive their GCSE certificates and subject awards for achievements throughout their final year at the school.
The guest of honour was Jen Briggs, a former headgirl, who now has a successful career as head of human resources at James’ Places.
She reminisced with the pupils about her time at the school and gave a fantastic motivational speech to them on the merits of hard work and school being the stepping stone to achieving success later in life.
After each form group was presented with their GCSE certificates Georgia Walker-Carter and Eliza Peachey then gave a fabulous performance singing `Lay me Down’ and `Feeling Good’. The girls have sung at many events for the school and gave a truly professional performance.
The second part of the evening focused on individual subject awards and a small number of special awards.
