Herbert, Assistant Headteacher, said: "With food prepared by
the school's budding chefs, year 10 being front of house, and those
that attended to receive their certificates, the students yet again
proved to be a credit to parents/carers that we see every day."
"Congratulations to all our year 8 students for their hard
work and commitment! Special mention must also go to our interval
dancers Holly Sanders and Emma Orledge with a beautifully choreographed
Charles also delivered an inspiring and motivating speech written
by Melanie Bax about her son Joe who sadly died in 2015. Joe was
a strong member of our school community and his fight with cancer
and positive attitude at all times is something we will always remember."
"Finally Mr Tipler had the unenviable task of selecting his
pride of year 8 winners to round off the evening. After much deliberation,
the awards went to Fiona William and Jacob Kemp for their amazing
contribution to school life in and outside of lessons."
