We said goodbye to our Upper Sixth leavers on Friday 2 July after an emotional week as they enjoyed their last days with us as Farnborough Hill girls. Their final week offered the girls a chance to celebrate their time at the School and their seven years of making joyful memories here. As the girls have been organising their hoodies and finalising their yearbooks, they have been filled with nostalgia from their time spent at the heart of our community.
As part of their celebrations the girls enjoyed many activities such as their Retreat and Leavers' Liturgy, organised by our Chaplain, Mrs Nelle Dalton. They also organised a Charity Mufti Day enabling the whole School to participate in helping to raise funds for the Upper Sixth’s nominated charities, Mind and Macmillan Cancer Support. The girls also benefited from Pre-University Lessons which gave them an insight into university-style classes in subjects such as Business/Economics/Law, Biology, Politics, Photography and Spanish. On their Disney-themed Charity Day the girls truly embraced the theme, donning spectacular costumes and having marvellous fun at their lunchtime stalls which featured a variety of entertaining games for the whole School to take part in. The Leavers' Assembly marked the end of the week and was filled with joy and reminiscence as the girls prepare for their exciting futures beyond life on the hill. During a week filled with events, the sixth formers’ last day with us as students was one of both reflection and anticipation as they considered the new adventures they are about to embark upon.
Though we are saddened to see our girls leave, we are confident that they are leaving us as strong, independent women who will flourish in whatever they choose to do next. We look forward to welcoming them back as Old Girls very soon and wish them all every success for the future.
