Year 11 students at Attleborough celebrated their Leavers' Day on Wednesday 21 June. It was the perfect way to celebrate the end of a long and intense exam season, for which the students had put in lots of revision and hard work. It was a fancy dress day and the costumes were varied and inventive. The most originally dressed awards went to Sarah Richardson who came as a clown and Jamie Currie who came as a Scottish piper.
After having a Leavers' Assembly where rewards were distributed for endeavour and achievement, and anecdotes and photos of the students when they were younger were shared, the students paraded in front of the rest of the Academy, before enjoying a barbeque - in perfect weather. Jamie serenaded the diners by playing 'Amazing Grace' on the bagpipes. In return, the students expressed their thanks to teachers who had encouraged and inspired them during their time at the Academy.
Neil McShane, the Principal said, "The leavers have conducted themselves really well in what has been a very enjoyable day. This is a reward for all their hard work and efforts and we look forward to them receiving their examination results in August. They are a credit to their families, the community and the Academy".
