What a beautiful evening; the weather was glorious and our students did us all proud. They arrived in style; in tractors, Rolls Royces and double-decker buses, demonstrating their independence and confidence in the people they have become over the last five years. Schools are all too often measured simply on the results they produce and the Ofsted reports that are written, when we all know that so much of what is important is not easily measured but so critical to ensuring that our students are ready for their next steps. At Catmose we pride ourselves on offering students opportunities that broaden their experiences, develop leadership and offer them ways in which they can create a community to be proud of. This year 11 group has seized this ethos and made it their own, they have travelled Europe, performed, practiced and worked hard even through the most difficult times; their resilience will ensure they are successful in whatever they choose to pursue next.
During the evening I took a few photos of the students and staff, the full size copies can be found here:
