SCHOOL NEWS: Day of sunshine, pride and fun for Holyrood’s Year 11
HOLYROOD Academy students celebrated the end of their GCSEs and their five years at the school in true style.
The annual Celebration Day at Holyrood in Chard on Wednesday (June 27, 2018) was blessed with glorious sunshine with students arriving at the academy in a procession of sports cars, fire engines, tractors, motor bikes and trucks to name a few.
They all looked absolutely fantastic in their glamorous attire and were a credit to the Academy and the many families and friends who turned out to watch their arrival.
An emotional afternoon then took place in the sports hall where all students received their Records of Achievement and individual farewells from their tutors.
The evening saw the Year 11 Prom held at Haselbury Mill where everyone let their hair down and enjoyed an evening of dancing and fun!
Deborah Hogg, Head of Year 11, said “We wish every student success in their future. Many are staying on at Holyrood and we will be seeing them again in September in our Sixth Form.
“I am proud of their hard work and determination during their exams and throughout since Year 7 and I look forward to seeing them all again on results day in August.”
Matthew Collins, headteacher of Holyrood Academy, said: “It is days like these that remind us all how hard our students work to achieve their very best.
“I can remember when these students joined the Academy and can confidently say that they truly deserve the very best success in their GCSEs.
“The staff and I are all very proud of the way Year 11 approached their exams and are sure they will have much to celebrate when the results arrive in August.”
