Students from ACS Egham International School celebrated their final year at a graduation ceremony attended by over 450 family members, friends and staff.

The 56 students, all aged between 17 and 18, have just completed their International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme, an internationally recognised pre-university qualification that will allow them to continue their studies at universities worldwide.

The ceremony also included awards recognising the students’ outstanding achievements throughout their time at the school in London Road.

The Founders' Award was received by Sonia Ali and celebrates her academic achievement, contribution to school life, service to others and exceptional leadership.

Jeremy Lewis, headteacher at ACS Egham, said: “The ceremony was a great success and I was honoured to welcome family and friends to be part of the students’ celebrations. The commitment each student has shown during their time at Egham is a really testament to them. I am looking forward to seeing what other great things each student will achieve in the future.”

The guest speaker at the graduation ceremony was Dorothy Dix, Founder of Creating Better Futures; a charity that provides support to orphans and vulnerable children in Africa.
