It was an emotional morning for Year 11 as we said farewell to them. Senior Leadership and Heads of House all had things to say and there were several specially-shot videos to laugh along to before pupils were sent on their way (not to mention a special performance by our very own rock ‘n’ roll star, Mr Foster, who brought the school hall down with a solo).
Of course, lots of exams remain, so one of the messages was: keep doing what you’re doing. We are sure the hard work will pay off.
And it really is ‘au revoir’ rather than goodbye for many, especially those returning to our sixth form. And the prom isn’t very far away now.
But you only get to ‘leave school’ once and this was a day that will linger in the memory of all who were there.
