Yesterday was Leavers Day at school. It’s my favourite day of the school year – with all Year 11 pupils (“fresh” from the end of their GCSEs) arriving at school in their frocks (boys too!) and via various outlandish modes of transport. All the other pupils (plus parents+friends) gather outside the front of the school to welcome them – lots of cheering and photos (a little like the catwalk at the Oscars!). I’m about to complete my third year at school and so I’ve got to know a lot of the pupils pretty well over that time – which made it all the more special for me.
