School’s out for summer - and it broke up in spectacular style with an action-packed last few days of term, including a fun-filled Summer Showcase and end-of-term concert.
Highfields threw open its doors to families and members of the local community for the Summer Showcase, which incorporated this year’s Sports Day.
Crowds were entertained with a packed programme of events and activities, including dance and drama displays, performances by the school choir, arts & crafts stalls, enterprise challenges and showcases of students’ work.
Staff got involved in a range of fun-filled challenges, including ‘Beat The Goalie’, Egg & Spoon Race, Welly Wanging, and a Tug of War competition.
Refreshments were served throughout the day, whilst money was raised for Guide Dogs through the sale of students’ crafts and cakes. Dozens of students competed in a range of disciplines in the Sports Day element of the event, breaking a number of school sporting records in the process.
Ms J Parker, Head of Lower School who organised the event, said: “Many thanks to everyone who came along and took part - students and staff in particular, but also members of the local community and partner organisations who work alongside us in school.
“We have received so many positive comments about the day. It was a wonderful way to mark the start of summer.”
The term was officially brought to a close in annual toe-tapping style with the end-of-term Summer Concert.
Dozens of musicians and singers took to the stage to entertain a sell-out crowd with musical numbers from a range of genres.
Ms S Bishop, Head of Extra Curricular Performance, said: “We have so many talented performers in school so it was great to have such an enthusiastic audience coming out to support them on stage.
“We had a range of performances to suit all musical tastes. It was great to end the school term on a high.”
