Year 11 Leavers Day

Year 11 celebrated their last day on 22nd May with food and fun.  The day began with an English Exam (boo) and ended with a gathering of all year 11s to sign shirts and say goodbye, including farewell messages from Staff, leaver’s hoodies and photos, and the final raffle for the revision reward cards.

The grand prize was a Samsung Galaxy S4, with a case, Bluetooth keyboard and a few other accessories, worth a total of £250, sponsored by Abbey Business Equipment, for which we are very appreciative.  In recognition of all their hard work it was decided that we should reward students with the raffle for the grand prize. Students have been collecting stickers for attending revision sessions since Easter, each time they completed a card they were entered into the draw.   Mr Wycherley had the intense pressure of drawing the winning ticket, and the winner is …drum roll please… TOM CLIFFORD!  

A huge well done to Tom. Tom is a lovely student, who tried very hard and attended many revision sessions, including the odd one which was not for one of his classes but other groups, in which he did support another student who was working on challenging topics.

Tom had this to say…

“Since receiving the tablet it has helped me, not only on an entertainment side, but on an educational point as well.  I have been able to download many helpful revision apps.  All of these apps have helped me with my revision for my exams.  The tablet is easy to handle and control, so I can get it out and do some revision using the apps whilst I am on the bus for example.  I am thankful for Miss Morgan for organising the completion – using a prize for going to revision sessions is a great idea, and I feel she should continue to do this for the next year 11’s and for many years to come.”

We wish all of our year 11’s the best of luck for the future and hope they achieve all they set out to.

See you on results day!
