St Cuthbert’s Catholic High School in St Helens said farewell to its year 11 students on Friday (20 March).
Catherine Twist, headteacher at St Cuthbert’s Catholic High School in St Helens, said: “In the last few days we’ve had to prepare our Year 11 students for leaving school far earlier than expected. When they left school today they – along with their teachers and fellow students – knew that this was potentially the last day of their high school life and we did not want it to pass without recognition.
“We tried to keep as many of our leaving traditions as possible under the current circumstances, including our staff forming as a Guard of Honour and clapping the students out of the main entrance. We felt this was a fitting way to thank them for their hard work and contribution to school life during their time with us. We would like to commend their maturity and resilience in dealing with these sudden changes, and the ways in which they have supported their teachers and classmates at this emotional time. You are all a credit to our school and yourselves.”
