Congratulations to Chelsea’s 2018 Graduates

We were thrilled to start this week at London Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall celebrating with our students as they enjoyed their graduation ceremony. A beautiful sunny day provided the perfect backdrop for students as their families and friends honoured their achievements.

Below are some pictures from the day which we hope you will enjoy.

You can see some more Chelsea Graduation photos on our Flickr page.
