We held a very special occasion on 18th June as our Y11s came back into school after their exams to receive their Record of Achievement folders. These hold certificates, CVs and personal statements, but are just a start to their journey ahead as they will keep adding to it!
But it was also a celebration of their time at Meadowhead School and they were treated to musical performances by Jamie Walker and Gazilion (a Y11 band). We were pleased to welcome Paul Walker as our guest of honour. Paul is a football commentator and radio presenter who has worked on many key events both at home and all over the world. He spoke of his journey from volunteering at Hallam FM and struggling to get a paid job as a sports journalist to the highlight of his career (so far) as a commentator at the football world cup in Moscow last year. Paul told our students to be persistent – ‘you will have set backs but don’t give in!’
There were thanks from the Head Boy and Head Girl and their deputies to their form tutors, to Mr Needham (Head of Year) and Mrs Smith (Pastoral Manager) and to all staff who have been part of their time at Meadowhead. Mrs Grewal-Joy concluded with an inspiring message not to waste a single second of their lives!
Well done Y11 - we are all incredibly proud of you!
