Busy End for Life as a Middle School


It has been a hectic end of term at Hethersett Middle School as it prepares to change to junior status in September. 

Head Teacher Andy Whittle said farewell to over half the school at the final morning assembly of the summer term. 

“We are saying goodbye to 150 year three and four pupils today,” he said. 

Both years will be moving up to Hethersett High School with two years coming to the new junior school from Woodside First School which is changing to infant status. 

The final week in the life of the middle school included art displays throughout the school, two evening art performances, a swimming gala at Old Hall School and children’s discos. 

It was all rounded off with a special leavers’ service in St Remigius Parish Church led by the rector the Rev Di Lammas, who is also a school governor, and the Rev Mary Kerslake. The children were joined by staff, parents, governors and the public and leavers were given copies of the book “It’s Your Move” which covers stepping up to secondary education. 

During the service cups for outstanding contributions to the school were awarded to the following: Kerslake Trophy for Year Seven Girls, Jasmine Crane; Curson Trophy for Year Seven Boys, Mattie Hipperson; Year Six Girls, Lauren Page; Year Six Boys, Richard Wiltshire. 

Prayers and poems composed and read by Year Six children were read by Luke Ellwood, Laura Waterman, Heather Pullen and Alice Corina and prayers and poems for the holidays composed by Year Seven were read by Sam Kibble, Ryan Power, Beth Aylmer and Jasmine Crane. 

The new Hethersett Junior School logo designed by Ryan Power was also unveiled. 

The school also said farewell to chair of governors Peter Steward who has retired after 18 years as a governor, the last 10 of which have been as chair.
