Farewell to Year 13

Whilst Covid has dramatically changed the experience of Sixth Form for our Year 13 students they were determined, as they have been throughout, to make the most of their final few days.

They had a celebration trip to Flamingo Land, spending some quality time with each other and the staff who’ve supported them during their time in the Sixth Form. They had a great time and continued their celebration with a pizza party on their return.

On their final day they had a Leavers’ Presentation where staff and students had the opportunity to reminisce and celebrate all that they’ve achieved in their time at Boroughbridge High School.

Despite the challenges of the last two years, these students have shown remarkable resilience throughout and demonstrated their strength as a Year group team. This group of young people exemplify all that is in our mission statement, ‘To ensure that all students leave our school not only with the qualifications to access the next stage of their education or career of choice, but with the skills and confidence to make an active contribution to the communities to which they belong.’ Not only were their GCSE results two years ago above average but they have also developed the skills to ensure future success whilst having an incredible impact on our whole school community. They have performed at many concerts, supported in Key Stage 3 lessons, taken part in the appointment of new staff, led numerous lunchtime clubs for younger students and above all been excellent role models. So we give our thanks to Year 13 and wish them all the best for the future.
