Speech Day and Prizegiving 2019

On Thursday 4 July we held our annual Speech Day and Prize Giving, the perfect opportunity to celebrate the many achievements and successes of our pupils throughout the year.

The event took place in Chingford Assembly Hall, and this year we had a very special guest speaker, James Crouch. James is a Partner and Research Manager at Opinium, a research agency in London, working in political polling and social research. James also attended Normanhurst so it was fascinating to hear about not only his career, but life after Normanhurst.

As well as the huge array of prizes that were awarded, the evening was filled with many performances and musical numbers. The orchestra gave us a beautiful rendition of ‘Tango’, and the evening was rounded off with a Greatest Showman medley by the Junior choir, Beth and the orchestra, much to the delight of the audience.

We are very proud of our Heads of School, Ella and Umar, who both gave very moving speeches about their time at Normanhurst. We wish the new Heads of School, House Captains and Prefects the best of luck next year.

It was a fantastic evening full of proud pupils, staff, friends and family. Congratulations to all of our prize winners!
