Mr Mannal, head of prep at St Francis’ College in Letchworth, said: “The term ended with a farewell tea party, which included speeches by the prefects and house captains. The girls are certainly ready for the next stage in their education and we wish them a happy summer break!

“That said, most of the girls are coming back to join the St. Francis’ Senior School in Year 7 and it will be great to see them back after the holidays!”
