News > The annual Service of Confirmation was held in Chapel

The annual Service of Confirmation was held at the School Chapel on Sunday 20th June. The Service was officiated by the Rt Reverend Graham Usher, the Bishop of Norwich.

This special and moving occasion involved the largest number of Confirmation Candidates for many years. Charlotte G; Poppy G; Jennie G; Toby A; Edgar A; Harriet C; Sophia C; Jemima T; Edward T; Rosie W; Louis P; Digby V; Alice T; Bobby L; Tilly C; Ed D M; Monty S; Bea G; Segolame M; Will A; Julianna M; Annabel O; Harrison F; Harry B; Foster H; Jorja L; Ruby P; Pullo W; Evie F and Will B were all confirmed into full membership of the Church.

As part of the Confirmation Service the Bishop of Norwich gave each of the candidates a hazel tree to plant. This was a nod to Mother Julian of Norwich, the 14th century mystic, who reflected on the glory of God as she held a hazelnut in the palm of her hand. One of these trees will be planted at the Prep School, and one at the Senior School, so we can all watch them grow and flourish over the coming years alongside the young people themselves.
