THE final day of year 12 was met with mixed emotions from Girton Grammar School students - some excited and some sad.
The graduating cohort enjoyed a special lunch with their teachers and parents, before running their last school assembly.
Students scribble on each others' shirts, messages of good luck and stories of past memories shared together.
Year 12 graduate and school captain Angus McCormack described his seven years at Girton Grammar School as incredible.
"I am really excited about what the future holds but really sad," he said.
"I think after my first week of freedom I'll put my school uniform back on and try and sneak into the school.
"This school has taught me how to be a leader and to have confidence."
Year 12 teacher Joanne Grech said the class of 2013 were a great group of students, who were always full of energy and eager to learn.
"They will be missed," she said.
"I first met them when they were in year 7 - it's been great to watch them (grow)."
Ms Grech's one piece of advice for the group was "whatever will be, will be".
Headmaster Matthew Maruff said the students would be officially farewell at a valedictory dinner at the end of the exam period.
He described the group as curious and fun loving.
"They have a great sense of humour," he said.
"(I encourage them) to find what they passionate about and use it to benefit others."
