Every July we say goodbye to Year 6 and Year 11 students at our academies. With lockdown, this year our goodbyes had to be a little different, but no less special.
Co-op Academy Delius said goodbye and good luck to their Year 6s with a drive through graduation…
Our drive through Graduation had lots of big celebratory balloons, a DJ and some beautiful banners made by our children. We were even joined by Minnie Mouse for the occasion. pic.twitter.com/OOiBxQvRr7

At Co-op Academy Oakwood invited their in Year 6s in in small groups. They had socially distanced assembly and even managed some ‘hugs’ wearing their leavers hoodies…
Today, we had the first of four small group, socially distanced leavers assemblies in the playground. All the decorations were made by those y6s in school. We loved seeing everyone, enjoyed the photos of their younger selves and presented their leavers' files. Another tomorrow! pic.twitter.com/4elYeWfKA2

Co-op Academy Priesthorpe held their annual Presentation Evening virtually…
These are just some of the things our Academies did to make sure their students got the goodbye they deserved.
As always, we are sad to see our students go, but excited to see what they do next!
