Our Upper Sixth students said farewell to the school during the week before half term before embarking on study leave and the start of A level examinations. Their last week was very busy and enjoyable. Read more here.
Head of Sixth Form, Mr Craig McCready, reports:
We said a fond farewell to our Upper Sixth on Friday 25 May 2018 as they embarked on their study leave. They, of course, insisted on saying goodbye to us with a seemingly endless series of imaginative events over the course of their final week.
On Tuesday the school was overrun by zombies, who guarded the gates and attempted to infect anyone entering the site using a mix of silly string and water. It was a fun day and a great way for the girls to let off some steam prior to their exams.
‘Throwback Thursday’ brought the Upper Sixth to school dressed in their old uniforms (or variations of) as they relived their younger years and reminisced about their happy time at the school. This was accompanied by lots of laughter and just a sprinkling of tears!
On their last day, we treated them to a farewell breakfast and they treated us to their traditional Leavers' Assembly. It was touching, witty and full of warmth for their peers, their teachers and the School in general. They spoke with eloquence and pride; it is clear these girls are grateful to have attended Farnborough Hill and they will always be a part of the School family.
I’d like to wish them all the very best for their exams and their futures. As I said to the girls today, it has been a great highlight of my career so far to be their Head of Year. I will honestly miss them but I am sure they are headed for great things.
