Pupils in Year 11 came together to say their goodbyes and take part in their ‘stand down day’ ahead of their GCSE examinations starting.

Pupils enjoyed a treat lunch, with off-the-menu items, shirt signing and an emotional leavers assembly before heading to East Lancs Cricket Ground with their Form Tutors and Head of Year to burn off some energy and take part in a sports day style tournament, form versus form.

Head of Year 11, Mrs Cross said “We are extremely proud of the effort, attitude, and resilience our pupils have shown throughout the year and in the run up to their examinations.”

Mrs Gammon, Executive Head, said “We look forward to welcoming many back into our Sixth Form in September and for those who will take different paths, we wish them good luck for their futures.”
