Halcyon milestone: our first graduation – Class of 2017!

This is a particularly poignant moment in the school’s history when we think back to our beginnings four short years ago! Back in 2012-2013 when we were a building site with a handful of volunteers… Now we send our first graduates off to university with 100% of our students receiving placements.

We were excited to celebrate Halcyon’s first graduates with lots of friends and family at BAFTA in the heart of London. Students Finley D and Melina B provided wonderful musical performances and our G12 students gave a unique commencement speech featuring all graduates. Prof Liora Lazarus honoured us with a moving speech; you can read more about her here.

Congratulations to Alex, Anne-Marie, Charlie, Daphni, Dina, Gwen, Isla and Rachel! Best wishes for the future.

A huge thank you to the Halcyon community for coming out to celebrate and our wonderful volunteers for helping the event run flawlessly.

More videos and photos of the day coming soon!
