Year 11’s Final Assembly

On Tuesday afternoon we said an emotional farewell to our year 11 students in their final assembly. 

Students were treated to a musical medley performance from our Maestros, a personalised version of Greenday’s “Time of Your Life” by Mrs Connor and a final performance from Mr Williams. They also watched a video montage of the students’ last five years. 

Awards were presented for the final time for each subject area and each tutor group. A video was shown that staff had put together to wish the students well for the future and then, finally, Mr Williams gave a speech about the year group and awarded his Head of Year award. 

After shirt signing, selfies and a treat from the ice cream van, students departed. 

Thank you to the staff involved in putting this final assembly together to make it a special event for the students.

As a result, Axel has produced some of the most sophisticated responses that I have ever seen. Very well done!
