Our Year 13 students made sure it was a day to remember when they said goodbye to Attleborough Academy on their last official day of Secondary education. Whilst many Year 13 lessons will continue to attend lessons at the academy up until they sit their final exam in each subject, for these students this was the official end of seven years of their young lives spent at Attleborough Academy.
All the students made a considerable effort and entertained their teachers and colleagues with the wonderful array of imaginative and colourful costumes they adorned for the occasion.
To begin the celebrations, the Sixth Formers first attended an assembly led by Head of Sixth Form Mr Andy Cole, for a presentation with photos from their time at the Academy, and to relive amusing incidents from the students’ years here. Mr Nevard had put together a video for them, which contained messages of support and advice from all their teachers. Students then gathered for group photographs, before spending time with their form tutors where they wrote ‘thank you’ messages for individual staff and signed the book of Sixth Form Memories. They then relocated outside, (thank you to parent Mr Collier who provided us with the use of weather protection marquees!) to play rounders, and enjoy a delicious barbeque. During the afternoon other staff joined in the celebrations, conversations and goodbyes and students were able to group for photos with the friends and teachers that have been such a large part of their lives at Attleborough Academy.
