Covid-19 Update

Reluctantly the decision was taken to postpone the July 2020 Congregation due to Covid-19 restrictions. 

To create a safe and celebratory day for students and their families, we have deferred all of our Congregations this year to Summer 2021.  This includes the Winter ceremonies usually held in December. Ceremonies will take place between 5 and 16 July 2021. 

Students will be contacted shortly to explain the plans. 

Read the latest information here, that was sent to students on Friday 24 July 2020. 


Deferring your Ceremony

Graduates who cannot attend their ceremony for personal reasons can apply to defer to a future ceremony. Please download the document found here and email back to us at the email address below to apply for deferral. Please note all applications for deferral should be completed at least 7 days before the original graduation ceremony is due to take place, any deferral applications submitted after this time will not be considered.

If you have any questions relating to your ceremony, contact the Congregations Office at
