Farewell Class of 2021

#TeamPurple Party – Making Memories

On Friday 25 June, we said goodbye to our current Year 11s – Class of 2021 – also known as #TeamPurple. Staff and students pulled together to make it a night to remember.

Whilst some dressed in shades of purple, others expressed their individuality and came as themselves. Year 11 did themselves proud!

They walked the red carpet in style, enjoyed chatting and eating with their friends, celebrated their achievements with a mini Celebrate Success awards ceremony, danced through the rain and sang the end of the night away, taking over the mike to sing the likes of We Will Rock You and the nostalgic History.

Watch the video below to see photos from the night, and then turn the clock back to view Mr Elland’s video including photos from transition in Year 6 right the way through to 2021 (red button below).

Farewell Class of 2021. See you on Results Day!
