to our wonderful Year 13s

TODAY WE SAID a fond farewell to the Upper Sixth class of 2022, as they prepare to sit their A Level examinations and then venture on "to fresh woods and pastures new".

They joined us almost seven years ago and yet it seems hard to believe that it is already time to say farewell. To mark their departure, the departing students and staff enjoyed a buffet, kindly sponsored by the PFA, as well as an inflatable assault course and photo booth to capture memories. As has become traditional, many wore fance dress. Today's events followed a leavers' BBQ on Thursday night, which was also attended by staff at the invitation of the students, as well as a number of other events across the week to mark the leavers' final days.

This week has afforded opportunities for sharing memories, good wishes and thanks between students and staff alike, and has certainly been one that will be fondly remembered.

The Sixth Form is a source of energy and inspiration for the whole school. It sets the tone and determines the standards seen by other year groups, who often take their lead from the role models in Years 12 and 13. It has been wonderful to see the friendship, warmth and good-humour displayed by the great students in their final days at Wilson's. These traits have indeed been a hallmark of this year group and will no doubt have positively influenced generations of Wilsonian's to come too. Our best wishes to all of our Year 13 leavers for the time ahead and for the exciting adventures that lie beyond.



This week we welcomed delegates from a wide range of schools to a mental health conference in the McAlister Room, with a focus on the particular responsibilities of schools serving ethnically diverse communities. Anyone interested in finding out more about the day or seeing resources used should contact the school office.
