Completing any course of training is always a time of rejoicing.
Here at OMBS we like to celebrate each student’s achievements with them. At the end of their course we hold a Graduation Ceremony for the students, with their family and friends, in the beautiful setting of St Aldate’s Church. Each year we invite a guest speaker who has close links with OMBS.
Every student at OMBS is unique and through the year each of them will have discovered their own individual strengths and challenges. We like to make sure that upon graduation everyone has fulfilled their own personal potential and is ready to embark on their career ladder.
Graduation this year was held in the beautiful setting of St Aldate’s Church.
