The traditional ‘Leavers’ Day’ for all Year 11 students at saltash.net community school took place on Wednesday 7th May.  Although students will still be coming into school for examinations and revision lessons, and many will be returning into the 6th Form, a special day of fun and more serious events was planned to celebrate the year group’s many successes and wish them all well for the future.

The Year 11 Pastoral Team dressed up for the occasion alongside the students who, as always, arrived at school in an incredible range of fancy dress costumes.

A special buffet lunch was prepared and served by the school’s canteen staff and administrative staff.  Year Books were distributed as well as many awards and certificates, which included a large number for excellent attendance records over the last five years.

During the school’s lunch hour, students were treated to a live outdoor concert, featuring bands who regularly perform at the school’s Real Live Music Club headed by Mr Angus Reith, Curriculum Lead for ICT.

At the end of the day, a special and moving assembly was held in the school’s main hall, to which parents and other family members and friends had been invited.  Musical items were provided by two of the Year 11 GCSE Music students:  Jacob Hunt and Shelby Adcock.  A film made by two other Year 11 students, Jasmine Donovan and Joe Day, chronicling the year group’s journey throughout their time at saltash.net made a fitting conclusion to the assembly.

Head of Year, Mrs Sue Renfree, praised the Class of 2014, saying, ‘It has been a privilege to work with such a talented and hardworking year group.  They have already made us very proud and I am sure there will be many successes to celebrate this summer.’
