Year 6 Leavers’ Assembly

It is with sadness that we said goodbye to our Year 6 children today.  They have been the most incredible group of children  – right through our school – from Nursery to Year 6. We wish them all the happiness and success for the future.  Once again, they showed us their talents, at our Leavers’ Assembly today with a brilliant Dr Who play, and group dances (which they choreographed themselves!) to History by One Direction and My Lighthouse by Rend Collective.  We will miss you…but nothing’s gonna stop you now!  Be happy!
