Year 11 enjoy their Leavers’ Ball

17 May 2018

Over the last week, we’ve been creating and enjoying some wonderful memories with our Year 11 students.

The Leavers’ Ball was a fantastic night that we hope they’ll always remember. The sun shone on a perfect Spring evening as our students laughed, danced and enjoyed the sights from a luxury river cruise.

And at the Leavers’ Assembly, it was time to look back and recall some of their happiest moments in school. We began with their very first Year 7 photos, enjoyed some brilliant singing performances, and heard inspiring speeches from Head Boy Zack and Head Girl Busola.

As Year 11 begin their GCSEs this week, Headteacher Ms Linsley says: ‘This has been a great year group and a real pleasure to teach. It feels like no time since they arrived, nervous and excited, at our door. And now here they are, older and wiser, great young people – and hopefully just as excited about life. In the years between, they have learned resilience and determination, warmth and friendship, honesty and integrity; qualities every bit as important as their results. That’s what it means to be an SMMA alumni.’
