Friday the 13th May was the night of the Year 13 Leaver's Ball. The day began with a Leaver's Assembly in the morning which was kept rather secretive with no students allowed into the Sixth Form Centre in the morning or the night before. With students waiting outside long before it was time to go in, it was highly anticipated. There were some very interestingly dressed sixth formers on that Friday, some with their hair half done - all eager to go home to get ready for the Leaver's Ball. Once allowed in, we were all pleasantly surprised to see that the centre had been decorated with balloons, banners and collages of pictures of students over their time at North Chadderton.

The assembly was kept light-hearted and positive as awards were given to students for subject specific categories for their hard work over the year. The Senior Student Team also organised Student of The Year Awards which included sweet, silly and more unusual categories for awards which were presented. Class teachers also contributed to the assembly through video messages saying farewell and passing on their words of wisdom to us all. The assembly also included words from Ms Clark and a final inspirational speech from Mrs Greenwood. It was brought to a close with a video showing pictures of students from Year 7 to Year 13. It was beginning to dawn on many students that it was soon time to say goodbye to North Chadderton.

We were then dismissed for the day to get ready for the Leaver's Ball. At the Midland Hotel, students, guests and teachers alike arrived, dressed ready for the black tie event and were welcomed to a drinks reception in the Octagon Terrace. Following this was a three course meal in the Trafford Suite where we, as the Head Students, began by saying our thanks to teachers, Ms Clark and our Sixth Form Leaders for their help over the years. The event carried on with much dancing and laughter until well gone midnight. The evening overall was a great way to spend a special night as the Class of 2016 for one final time.
