Year 11 students at marked their time at the school with a day of fun and celebration on Friday 12 May.

The day has become a tradition at, celebrating the students’ time and achievements at the school in a fitting way that those involved will remember for years to come.

With exams approaching, students were provided with a final opportunity to unwind, attending school in fancy dress and receiving a lunchtime banquet.  Costumes worn included Harry Potter, groovy hippies, Super Mario, Gru from Despicable Me and a pair of terrifying Tyrannosaurus Rex’s.

Each student received an autograph book to record good luck wishes, and many spent the day getting friends and teachers to sign.

The farewell assembly included a number of outstanding performances. There were musical offerings from the duo of Molly Banks and Megan Kelly, as well as solo performers Matt Calder and Tyler Stapleton, whilst the entire dance routine of Beyonce’s ‘Single Ladies’ video was performed by Brad Sweet.

The students also watched leavers’ videos, compiled by Assistant Head of Year, Mrs Sloggett, chronicling their time at the school.  Shrieks of laughter emanated from the main school hall, when memories were re lived, some moving, that left many a damp eye and others squirming with embarrassment!

Head of Year, Mr. Feldwick had the final word, wishing the students all the best in their exams and delivering his all important piece of advice – ‘Always be true to yourself, and do what makes you genuinely happy.’

The next time the students come together as a year group will be at their end of year prom at Boringdon Hall on Friday 30 June.
