Greenfield class of 17 celebration evening

Year 11 leavers returned for a very special evening to celebrate their recent achievements at Greenfield Community College, both at the Aycliffe Site and Sunnydale Campus.

The evenings were a great success, with students going along with their families to receive their GCSE certificates and take part in the annual awards ceremony, a very special date in the school calendar.

Executive Headteacher, David Priestley was thrilled with the turnout saying, “As always on these occasions, it is a delight to see so many of our past students again. They are returning to receive recognition for the effort they put in.”

In addition to receiving GCSE and other academic certificates, a number of students were also presented with special individual awards for outstanding academic and personal performance.

Greenfield staff were delighted to welcome renowned writer and broadcaster Michael Chaplin, who was invited to present the awards and wish the students success on their continuing journey.

There was a great buzz in the room as the results were announced.

Deputy Headteacher, Mr Ron Milton was very proud of the year group and their achievements: “It was fantastic to welcome back the Class of 17 and their parents to the Sunnydale Campus to celebrate their GCSE success.

“During their time with us, they were a group of students who paid a huge effort to their studies and acted as positive role models to others in the school community.

“It was great to hear how they are progressing with their post 16 choices and this is an exciting time in their lives, we wish them all the very best for the future.”

The evening offered a lovely opportunity for all the students and families to catch-up and share some great memories, chatting with staff and bringing each other up-to-date with plans for the future.

Staff at Greenfield Community College would like to thank everyone involved for a wonderful evening and look forward to keeping in touch with future progress.
