Year 11 students at Hillcrest Grammar School celebrated the end of an era as they partied at the Alma Lodge Hotel.

The GCSE group from the top Cale Green School said a fond farewell to the teachers who over the years have become friends as well as mentors.

Hillcrest Grammar School’s Headmaster Richard Mace said: ‘It is a testament to the fabulous spirit at Hillcrest that everyone should turn up from both the student body and teaching staff to enjoy a wonderful evening together.’
