All graduation gowns must be hired through our supplier, Ede and Ravenscroft via their website and all students must be wearing the official robing to cross the stage.

Graduation is a formal event and a chance for our students to dress up. Despite the ceremony being held in the winter, it can get warm inside the auditorium and beneath the heavy, thick gowns, so please bare that in mind when choosing an outfit. On the graduation hood there is a small loop to attach to shirt buttons, if you aren’t wearing a shirt or have no buttons bringing safety pins might be something to consider.


Ede and Ravenscroft offer a wide variety photography packages to choose from, bookable via their website, if you wish to have professional photos taken. The Royal Festival Hall is also located in a beautiful Central London location so there are plenty of photo opportunities in the surrounding areas!

We sincerely hope that you will join us in January and please don’t forget to book your tickets and gown before the deadline of 22nd December!
