Zombies and Smurfs at Attleborough sixth form leavers day

Colourful characters from Smurfs to zombies turned up for school for the sixth form leavers day at Attleborough High.

The students waved goodbye to secondary education on their last official day at school ahead of their A-level exams.

For most students, this was the end of seven years of their lives spent at Attleborough High. They began the day with a celebration assembly led by head of sixth form Brian Hunt and assistant head of sixth form Ramin Keschevarz.

There were also presentations and gifts of thanks to Connie Wind Avery and Mary Ellen who were also leaving the school at the end of the academic year after many years of teaching at the school. Later in the day the students enjoyed a barbecue.

Brian Hunt, head of sixth form, said: 'These are a marvellous group of students and it is sad to see them go. Many of them will be moving onto degree courses at universities across the country and we wish them all the very best in the next stage of their lives. We look forward to our final 'send-off' to them at what, I am sure, will be a fantastic Year 13 Prom at Dunston Hall later this month.'

Headteacher Neil McShane added: 'This Year 13 group have shown great commitment to their studies in response to the tremendous teaching by our staff. We know they are now well equipped to continue their journey into further education and the world of work.'
