Dear Parent/Carer,

The last Friday of June is always the official last day for Year 11 in England. At Liskeard, we have always invited students back the week after to attend the Record of Achievement Celebration (ROA) and, of course, the Year 11 Prom. Over the years we have also offered Year 11s the chance to have a day out, often to Thorpe Park. Alas, this year, these events just aren't possible because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

I know a number of students have been hugely disappointed in not being able to sit their exams. To also not be able to celebrate their final year of GCSEs in our usual way is doubly hard. We explored the possibility of re-scheduling the prom to August, but this isn't going to be allowed. As we do not know when 'mass gatherings' will be given the go ahead by the Government, we are now proposing that we hold an evening celebration event on Friday 4th December. If, by then, we still aren't allowed mass gatherings, we will think again.

We are planning an event of two halves - the first half will be a celebration of students and their achievements. During this part of the evening, we will present students with their ROA folders and their GCSE certificates in the presence of parents and carers. We will also reminisce about their time with us and present some awards. We will then say goodbye to parents/carers and have some fun in the second half. We will provide some food, drink (non-alcoholic, of course) and music - perhaps one of Mr Knipe's silent disco's?! This will be a chance for students to let their hair down, catch up with friends and enjoy one last time as a year group together. Although the event won't be a prom, we hope it will be special and one they will remember in years to come. The dress code will be smart, but not ball wear.

Obviously, we will provide more details nearer the time, but I wanted to give you the heads up now so you can save the date.

Best wishes,

Mr Lingard

Headteacher
