For the whole of Year 9 the academic year ended on a high point in their educational journey, with their graduation from Key Stage 3.
The graduation was an opportunity to celebrate and acknowledge achievements so far, through Bronze, Silver or Gold Awards and to mark the next step in their education. The years ahead will see a shift in emphasis and ways of learning and the graduation was as much to prepare them mentally for this as it was to celebrate. Parents were also invited and took great pride watching their child dressed appropriately in a mortar board.
Students were also treated to a party afterwards where some more fun awards were issued such as: ‘best hairstyle’, ‘most creative’ or ‘most likely to become a millionaire’.
