“IT was a delight to celebrate with pupils and parents at the Sixth Form Leavers’ Midsummer Ball last night. It was a reminder of how long many parents have been loyal supporters of the school, over 20 years for some. It was a tremendous event, with a real sense of community between parents, pupils and staff; a fitting way to mark the end of the journey at King’s Ely.

“House Swimming and the unique ‘Sword and Dagger’ competition also took place yesterday, allowing pupils to have a more relaxed last full day in school. The ‘Sword and Dagger’ is a King’s tradition in which highly competitive house teams take on the assault course with the whole school spectating and supporting.

“As I sign off for the last time this year, thank you for all your support and encouragement throughout this last year. My advice to pupils is always to stay in touch with the school and above all to stay in touch with each other.

“Have a lovely summer!”
