A leavers Mass was held for Year 11 at St Joseph’s Church in Newby on Friday 27th June, the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Year 11 students and their families were invited to the celebration Mass offered by Father William Massie.

The Mass was followed by a beautiful and emotional speech by Mr Taylor, who thanked Year 11 and their parents. Head Girl Zara De Freitas, and Head Boy Max Truelove also spoke, giving thanks to their teachers and form tutors, using funny anecdotes about their time at school.

Finally, Mr Taylor and the Year 11 form tutors presented each student with a         commemorative key ring and postcard featuring St Augustine of Canterbury. A buffet reception was held in St Mark’s Parish Centre, where Year 11 and their   families continued the celebration.
