Dr Rolph said: "The last year has been so unusual and significant in the history of our schools.
"We've gone through a merger, joining together two partner schools to make a new one.
"Monks' Dyke Tennyson College is already proving to be successful: in terms of exams results, sporting achievements, and simple popularity among parents.
"Already we have a whole that is greater than the sum of the parts.
"This ceremony celebrated the students' achievements and tonight is their evening, rewarding their success.
"We are right to be proud of our achievements, and we are equally right to look forward to more."
