That time of year again and as a Year 11 Form Tutor and subject teacher I really wanted to see how everyone had done.
My students did very well, gaining the grades that I said they would. Lots of very happy faces last Thursday. There was a lovely atmosphere and it was amazing how much they had all changed since we last saw them.
My tutor group also did very well and I am sure that we shall look at the results in more detail in the new term. I main concern was that they were pleased with their results, able to mover on to the next stage such as college or job and that they had no regrets. I spoke to nearly all of them last Tuesday and the smiles (some of relief) said it all.
The past 5 years have really flown by and I shall really miss all 28 of them. Over the years I have worked with quite a few groups ranging from 1 to 5 years in time and I can honestly say that they have been the nicest, most fun, good all round group that I have been given.
Tough act for the next group in September.
We had an award assembly just before they left and we won the highest attendance over the 5 years plus best overall Tutor Group.
Many would say we were quite low key, did not appear to be top all the time but I think that the key was consistency over the years and just keep plodding away, which we did.....me included.
I have quickly met my new group and the first signs are looking good.
So well done to my old group, I shall miss you loads............hello to my new group and here is to the next 5 years!!!!!
