Senior Prize Giving

Senior Prize Giving was a wonderful celebration of all that the girls achieve throughout the year. The novelist Claire Sparks inspired the girls with her speech about taking risks and opportunities in life.

 On Thursday 18 September Leicester High School held its annual Senior Prize Giving for Years 12, 13 and the Leavers of 2014. The audience were treated to magical performances by Amalia Young on the violin, Susannah Wang and Claire Zhang, who performed a beautiful piano duet, and Sorcha Whyte, who sang “ I dreamed a Dream” which she had sung to Prince Edward earlier in the year at a Duke of Edinburgh event held at St James’ Palace in London. Over 175 prizes, awards, colours and certificates were distributed in recognition of the academic, sporting, debating, musical and artistic achievements of the senior girls over the past academic year. Guest speaker Miss Claire Sparks spoke enthusiastically about how school equips each and every one of us with the passion and courage to pursue our dreams and ambitions, as she spoke about how her own life had changed, since she left behind the world of PR to write her first and hugely acclaimed novel.
