Farewell year 13

So farewell then year 13

An unorthodox end to an unorthodox two years, but we managed to say goodbye and good luck to our year 13 students with an afternoon tea served by the school leadership team. With the current rise in COVID rates we felt it was safer not to hold the usual sixth form prom, the second year we have had to cancel it. Instead, a good number of the year group enjoyed a very warm and luckily dry afternoon beneath the large Sackville Oak and reminisced about their time at Sackville, and their unique sixth form experience, with so much of it home learning.

This year group have been amazing at rising to the challenges presented by the COVID period and have worked so hard to secure good grades in the summer assessment series. Goodbye and good luck, class of 2021; we are going to miss you.

Special thanks to Mrs Barden and Mrs Smith, and the canteen team who went a long way beyond the call of duty to make this happen. We are extremely grateful also to Amber T for providing quality live entertainment, and to Lisa Hepburn and Balloon Boutique who stepped in at the last minute to provide a balloon arch.
