6th Form Presentation Evening 2015

Posted by on Jan 13, 2016 in News | No Comments

The annual 6th Form presentation evening at saltash.net community school took place on Thursday 17th December and was attended by a very large number of ex Year 13 students with their family and friends, as well as many teachers and support staff all wanting to add their congratulations to an outstanding year group.

Headteacher, Mrs Bryce, Chair of Governors, Mrs Waghorn, and current Head of 6th Form, Mr Killeya, all welcomed those attending and emphasised how proud the school was of everything that had been achieved by the 94 students. The A Level results had been the best in the school’s history and reflected a huge amount of hard work and commitment on the part of the students as well as excellent teaching and outstanding levels of guidance and support from the 6th Form team.

Given how good the results were, it was particularly fitting that the ex Head of 6th Form, Mr Nick Scantlebury, who retired last summer, was able to return for the presentation evening to speak to the young people involved and add his congratulations.

It was also excellent that the Guest of Honour was an ex student from saltash.net, Mr Gary Davies, now a very successful business person, and management consultant and trainer. Gary spoke with the students about what it was like to walk through the doors of a brand new school back in 1965 and how important it was to find the thing you were passionate about in life and follow your dreams.

After the presentation of the A Level certificates, the following individual awards were given:
