Posted by on May 22, 2015 in News | No Comments

Year 11’s ‘official’ last day is a ‘rite of passage’ anticipated with a range of emotions by students and staff alike at community school.  On Friday 8th May, there was much fun and laughter as the students arrived in an incredible array of fancy dress outfits for their last day of lessons before the examination and revision programme commenced in earnest.

There were also, however, tears and hugs as the year group, head of year, tutors, teachers and support staff came together to share memories and reflect on everything that had been achieved over the last five years.  There were lessons as normal in the morning, followed by a special lunch in the gym which gave all of the students an opportunity to have their Year Books signed, whilst being entertained by Year 11 student Nathan Daniel, an ‘in house’ DJ!

There was live music at lunchtime with an open air ‘bandslam’ session in the Year 9/10 quad.  Students Bronwen Hall, Elliot Wearne Gould, Ryan Kean and Matt Ward performed a series of numbers providing the perfect entertainment for the Year 11 cohort.

In the afternoon, Year 11 assembled in the main hall with Head of Year, Mr Oakes, and Assistant Head of Year, Mrs Sloggett.  More musical entertainment was provided by Lydia Herbert, Rose Bonner and Chloe Brandon.  Teacher of PE, Mrs Emma Gue, was presented with a bouquet for all she did to help with the Year Book, and student, Toby Shotton, was presented with a certificate and reward for achieving the outstanding feat of having 100% attendance throughout his whole time at

Headteacher, Mrs Bryce, commended the class of 2015, saying she knew they would make everyone proud this summer and wishing them all the very best now and in the future.
