Year 13 Leavers Assembly
Year 13 students were sent off in style with a special assembly on Thursday, 24 May. They gathered in the common room, along with teachers and members of staff who have worked closely with them, to mark the end of their time here, before they start study leave in preparation for their final exams.
The 6th form team did a wonderful job of decorating the common room and putting together ‘little bags of happiness’, cupcakes and balloons for the students to take away. They coordinated the running order for the assembly, having gathered in nominations and arranged for staff and students to present awards.
First up were the Sixth Form Committee, who recognised staff in a range of categories as voted for by the student body. These included Mr Richards for the most fun lessons, Ms Mughal for the most sarcastic teacher, and Mrs Sehmi for the most mothering teacher. The crowning glory was reserved for an incredibly popular member of staff; PC Brown graciously accepted the lifetime achievement award, striding up through the cheering crowd to the front, arms in the air.
Next up were the Form Tutor awards, in recognition of the most kind, polite and hard-working students, selected by each Year 13 form tutor. The 6th form team announced their Mr Men/Little Miss award winners, which included Mr Chatterbox and Miss Scatterbrain, and students were given a book of the same name. Finally, the students who had won the ‘most likely’ awards, as voted for by their peers, were announced. Rory Bell was voted the most likely to win a Nobel Prize, Dani Mathew won most likely to become famous, and Zul Saddique was voted most likely to become Prime Minister.
Mrs Braim, Progress and Welfare Leader for Key Stage 5, and Mr Donlon, Director for Key Stage 5, delivered heartfelt speeches about how much the students will be missed and the exciting opportunities that lie ahead for each and every one of them. On behalf of everyone at Allerton Grange, we wish Year 13 good luck in their exams and all the very best for the future.
