Year 11 have celebrated the end of their GCSE exams and marked five years of attending Richard Lander School with Leavers Day and the Year 11 Ball.
The effort and creativity that had gone into the fancy dress costumes on Leavers Day was outstanding. Mario and Luigi, Minions, Superheroes, Disney Princesses (male), Mexicans, Disco Balls and a Jamaican Bobsleigh team all walked the corridors while Sumo wresters tackled the Bucking Bronco. Ten boys demonstrated that you didn't need to break the bank to come up with an eye catching costume when they arrived earing girls school uniform!
This year, students were treated to a BBQ in glorious sunshine, provided by Mr and Mrs Beech, hair and nail treatments, a bouncy castle with slide and other inflatable fun. The day ended with an assembly featuring Year 11s primary induction video from 2009, suitably embarrassing photographs from their years at Richard Lander School, and one last ‘Wake and Shake’ with Mr Holloway and some of our most flamboyant Year 11s. After a busy morning the buses arrived to take students home to prepare themselves for their Leavers Ball.
