End of Term Summer Assembly

Due to the overwhelming number of people attending this year ,we decided to hold our end of term assembly outdoors. We were extremely lucky with the weather as the sun shone down on us for the day . Parents/carers and family members came to school to see many pupils receive various trophies and awards. They were also entertained by lots of singing and also by some pupils who were brave enough to sing some solos! We also said a sad goodbye to Mrs Adcock who was leaving us after many years to enjoy her retirement.

The two winners for the Summer Term were announced recently at our end of term Summer assembly.

The first winner was Tony who is in Year 11. Tony was nominated to receive the award by both staff and pupils. He is extremely well liked and staff are always impressed with the amount of time he gives up to help around the school and in his lessons. He has also just completed his GCSE exams and has spent time over the last year being very determined and working extremely hard on them.

The second winner was Sophie in Middle school. She was nominated for her positivity and hard work in all of her lessons. Sophie always goes out of her way to help other pupils in her class who are struggling and she is a loyal friend to many.
