Mary Rose opened in September 2006 and moved into the new building in 2007. During this academic year we have arranged a number of events to celebrate our 10th Anniversary.
On 7th March we had a big whole school celebration which included a presentation illustrating the journey over the last 10 years. The whole school then took part in a themed day that was based on the 10th Anniversary and also marked the beginning of our journey to Tokyo, ready for the next Olympics. As a specialist sports college we traditionally spend one day each year focusing on the journey to the country where the next Olympics is to be held.
As the 10th Anniversary is a ‘tin’ anniversary, every pupil and member of staff was presented with a personalised tin mug to mark the occasion.
Yet to come we have a big Family Fun Day and Barbecue on Saturday 8th July, when staff, pupils and families, both past and present, have been invited to a reunion. At this event there will also be an Art Exhibition when all the art we have been working on this year both as part of the curriculum and with professional artists will be displayed.
