A guest speaker took to the stage at Desborough College in Maidenhead to talk to former pupils at the inaugural speech evening.
Co-founder of the Education Fellowship Trust and former executive in the John Lewis Partnership and managing director of BAA Plc, Johnson Kane, was the special guest.
He spoke about the qualities of being persistent and working towards a clear goal - not giving up until you reached it.
Former pupils including Mohammed Haque, Sarfraz Khan and Junayd Ahmed (pictured left) attended the event on Friday last week to collect prizes and meet with old friends and staff.
