A Note to Year 13
Good luck Y13 - Class of 2017
Y13 celebrated the end of their A level studies at High Storrs with their final assembly on Wednesday 24th May. For many students this was the end of seven years of education at High Storrs, for some they are the final member of their family to leave the school. Whether students have spent many years at High Storrs or just joined us for their A level studies, the theme of community and friendship, many forged at primary school, was evident. Y13 tutors gave very personal touches to their speeches for the members of their forms; Mrs Spencer creating a musical farewell accompanied by members of the form on drum and keyboard.
For myself, it was an assembly that held mixed emotions, as I leave my post as Director of Sixth Form after 10 years. As always I am impressed by the generosity, kindness and talent of our students.
As I said to the year group it has been a privilege to be Director of Sixth Form for this year group and those that have left in previous years. Hopefully High Storrs has equipped them for the next stage of their lives, whether it be employment, university or gap years.
So, once again I say to the year group, good luck for the forthcoming examinations; you have worked hard and deserve to do well so that you can take up the opportunities you have planned for. Our next celebration is at the Prom on 12th July and I look forward to seeing you there, along with many of your teachers.
Remember Y13, have big dreams and ambitions but also get the little things right, treat each other kindly and work hard at whatever you choose to do. Most importantly do not forget us.
With my best wishes
