Year 13 students enjoyed a celebratory send-off during their last week in school. For the first time, both Divisions came together for a fancy-dress Fun Run in aid of charity: a tradition that has been running in the Boys’ Division for some years. This time, boys and girls took to the Levels in costume to run or walk laps and raise money for a good cause. The charity this year was Ukraine appeal, which was chosen by the family of Cameron Milton, a Year 13 student who sadly died in March. The total raised was £140. After the Fun Run, everyone was treated to ice creams to cool down before the end of the day.

On Wednesday, the cohort’s last full day in school together, the Boys’ and Girls’ Divisions enjoyed separate year group celebrations before coming together for a special lunch in the Boys’ Division Dining Hall.

Head of Foundation Mr Philip Britton gave a brief address before the food was served. He called them a ‘pioneering year group’ who were the first to experience joint lunches in the Arts Centre, as well as handling the pandemic. He also reassured the students about their exams to come. Finally, he added that it was great to be able to enjoy one another’s company together and in person, particularly since their Sixth Form years have been dogged by Covid.

Mrs Kyle, the Head of Girls’ Division, and Mr Ford, the Head of Boys’ Division, also said a few words and wished all of the students well.

After their celebratory lunch, students departed for Study Leave ahead of their A Level exams.
