Music was provided by Ruby, a gifted violinist and MVC pupil.

Art teacher Sarah Heeks said: "The incredible creative art produced by MVC art pupils shows how valuable art is to the young. In difficult times, art allows students to be creative, overcome problems, develop resilience, express their dreams and use their imagination.

"The class of 2022 should be very proud of how they have expressed their individuality and produced meaningful and impactful work."
