Wednesday 27th June 2018 and Thursday 28th June 2018 were days to remember for Year 11 students at both Longdendale and Rayner Stephens High Schools.
These two dates marked the conclusion to a magnificent five years of learning at their schools, which started with emotional Leavers Assemblies; bidding a final farewell to the class of 2018.
The assemblies celebrated their journeys along with their successes and achievements. Students laughed, and shed a few happy tears, as they remembered the numerous trips, enrichment activities and day-to-day experiences at Longdendale and Rayner Stephens.
Recognising that that special time of the year had finally arrived for their graduation, The Classes of 2018 students joined together in style to celebrate their achievements’ at their School Proms Night.
There is only one School Prom in a student’s life time, so everything had to be perfect from their hairstyles, make up, nails and dresses, and the sharp suits.
The Class of 2018 School Proms proved to be a perfect end to their High School days.
Staff and parents were able to bask in the sunshine at the White Hart in Lydgate celebrating the arrival of the students who arrived with lots of glitz and glamour.
In a joint congratulatory speech, the Head Teachers of the respective high schools and Aspire Educational Trust commented, ‘On the respective evenings the students enjoyed an amazing Prom where they joined together in celebrating their hard-work over the last five years. As well as speeches, awards and good food, the students were entertained by unusual quests to win complimentary soft drinks and danced the night away until midnight. The amazing atmosphere and the way the year groups celebrated together was a fitting end to their school careers and their journey into being young adults.’
‘It has been an honour and a privilege for the Trust to have been a part of the lives of these wonderful students and we look forward to seeing the students of the Class of 2018 on result’s day in August, and we wish them every success in their futures.’
