Christmas Celebration Assemblies

This term’s celebration assemblies were held on Wednesday when students were recognised and rewarded for their behaviour and attendance during this term.

Awards were made in the following categories and when more than one student was nominated a special ‘santa race’ was held to determine the winner. This caused a lot of fun and excitement in the various assembly venues.

  • Student of the month

  • Student of the term

  • Most commendations

  • Good behaviour award

  • 95% attendance award

  • 100% attendance award

Mr Manley said, “It's always lovely to end this term by celebrating the achievements of so many students.''

Thank you to our Heads of Year and Deputy Heads of Year for delivering the assemblies and a special mention to Mrs Stanton for putting the wonderful slides together.
