Awards and Celebrations!

On our final night, we are always spoiled with a fantastic program of events.

All the students were dressed to the nines: suit and tie, heels and jewels. Many of the faculty members were wearing their subfusc

Full academic dress, known as sub fusc (from the Latin sub fuscus meaning dark brown), must be worn at all formal University ceremonies including matriculation and degree ceremonies. Sub fusc is also required when sitting examinations (mortar boards and gowns may be removed during the examination).

The night begins with a fantastic seated and served dinner by the Oriel staff: students were sat in Hall, in the balcony, and a lucky few in the Champney’s Room, usually reserved for senior students and fellows. The dinner was excellent, highlighted by a most excellent desert of Eton Mess.

After dinner we headed to St. Mary’s Church, just across the High St, to have our awards ceremony. Each teacher did a magnificent job of talking about their class and their talented OxPreppers. Award winners each received a fabulous certificate noting their accomplishment, and a gift selected by their teacher especially for them.
