On Friday 27th June staff, parents, carers and friends bade a fond farewell to our leavers.
A decent gathering, buoyed by the absence of much anticipated heavy rain, enjoyed the hearty barbecue fare, prepared by our very own catering team, whilst seated in a square of marquees decorated in bunting. Indeed the gathering resembled a village enjoying a summer fete as our Head Teacher, John Taylor, prepared to make his annual address.
After recognising the endeavour of students and staff alike each Year 11 leaver was called up to receive their Record of Achievement to warm applause.
Later there were Curriculum and Special Awards to present and among the highest achievers recognised was Fergus Smith-Jones who received the coveted John Holland Award for special achievement in English as well as two curriculum awards. Other high achievers included Hope Brown who was picked out for special praise and awarded the Work Award to go alongside no fewer than 3 curriculum awards. But, of equal merit over their final year at school was Shaun Hughes who proudly accepted the Head Teacher Award as well as two further curriculum awards.
