Mia's Perfect Record


In our modern world, young people and parents are often criticised for missing days from school because of unexpected holidays, truancy or lack of discipline. However this year Hethersett High School and Science College is celebrating the perfect four year attendance record of one of its pupils. 

Mia Living is now a Year 11 student studying 12 GCSEs. She started Hethersett High, which has 750 students primarily from the catchment area of Hethersett, Mulbarton and Cringleford, in September 2004 and since then has attended school every day without fail without a single day off through illness, unexpected holidays or unexplained absences.  

To mark her 729 days attendance up to and including the Year 11 last day celebration, Mia was presented with a reward from the school as part of its approach to recognising examples of excellent behaviour.  

The reward, supported by Park Farm Hotel in Hethersett, is Sunday Lunch for four in the hotel’s restaurant at the hotel. Hotel Manager Richard Bond said: “Park Farm is a local employer and we know how important it is that young people start their working career with an excellent education and that attendance in school is a key part of achieving that. We will be delighted to welcome Mia and her friends or family to Park Farm in the near future”. 

Head teacher Rosemary Allen commented “Mia has been a real example to all of us about the commitment that can be applied to learning. I wish her every success in her GCSEs and for the future”. 

Mia is part of the Year 11 group from Hethersett currently sitting their GCSE exams. The results of those examinations will be published on 21st August.
