Impressive Human Beings in Every Way


Posted on 21st January 2019

A year ago we were preparing for Year 6 SATs.  We’d been on our London residential, and we had all sorts of good things planned for the summer.  All of our Year 6 were working and playing hard.  They loved learning and each other’s company.

Then on 22nd April our community suffered a terrible bereavement.  Matt’s funeral was on the first day of SATs week.  So these Year 6′Impressive Human Beings in Every Ways came in to do their SAT at 8:30, enabling teachers and pupils to attend the funeral.  They all carried on and took their SATs tests that week.  They looked after each other and learnt a lot about priorities and perspective…

Statistics…  I’m always wary of school ‘league tables’  as they are just one indicator.  But for once I am going to share this.  These children and teachers were so kind, brave, patient and resilient in SATs week, and throughout the summer term.  They put on a brilliant production of West Side Story, in which positivity and love triumphed rather than failed.  And that’s who they are!  Well done, last year’s Year 6 – you thoroughly deserve to be in the top 30 school results in England, because you are impressive human beings in every way.

Happy 50th birthday, Mrs Knowles (Year 6 teacher extraordinaire), and congratulations!
