We were delighted to welcome grandparents of our Year 7 students into school this morning to watch their final assembly of Term 1. Mrs Wiltshire, Head of Year 7, led the assembly focusing on how far each of them had come since joining us only seven weeks ago. Student were recognised for all their achievements whether representing the school in a sporting team, entering a house competition as well as for all the house points they have been awarded.
Students were then able to give their grandparents a tour of the school, introducing them to their favourite teachers and showing them the parts of the school which were important to them. Grandparents returned to the hall to enjoy refreshments including cakes provided by our caterers, Aspens. Our Year 10 Peer Mentor prefects and members of staff chatted with families. We particularly enjoyed hearing from grandparents with a previous connection to the school including one who was part of the team that built the school in 1962!
