I would like to thank you for this year here at OMBS. I have learnt more than I ever thought I would, been given endless opportunities, heard amazing talks and also made wonderful friends for life.
Cassia, 3 term PA Diploma, July 2018 Leaver


Completing any course of training is always a time of rejoicing.  Here at OMBS we like to celebrate your achievements with you and at the end of your course we hold a Graduation Ceremony where family and friends are invited to join you.

Every student at OMBS is unique and has individual strengths and weaknesses and we like to make sure that upon graduation everyone has fulfilled their own personal potential and is ready to embark on their career ladder.

The Graduation Ceremony is held at St Aldates Church, not far from the College. The students have the opportunity to have a professional photo taken in our OMBS gowns as featured below. Each year we are honoured to have a guest speaker who has close links with OMBS. Please see below for a list of guest speakers and a copy of their speech.
