Lancaster Girls’ Grammar School held its annual Speech Day in the Great Hall at Lancaster University.
The guest speaker for the evening was Sandi Haythornthwaite, an old girl and now governor of the school.
During the evening certificates and prizes were presented to the many high achieving students in Years 10 to 13.
For the first time a very special prize was presented, the Alexandra Crossley Memorial Prize.
Alex, a student at LGGS from 2002 to 2008, sadly died in London last year.
She is remembered for her strength of character and individuality.
The first recipient of the prize, awarded to a student who has overcome adversity, was Alice Roberts, who was very badly injured in an accident when in Year 10.
Alice has overcome long periods in hospital and a difficult recovery time and her determination to succeed and make the most of every opportunity made her a worthy and popular recipient.
