Good afternoon everyone

It is fabulous to see so many people here at this annual event and a special thanks to the families, Governors and members of the community who have come along also to share this time with us.

So here we are, at the end of a decade! For each one of you, it was the decade in which you joined LCHS. And look what you have done with your time here! This past year has seen so many wonderful things happening in our school:

  • For the third consecutive year, our school celebrated the best ever results. With GCSEs in 2017 and with A-levels in 2019;
  • We welcomed a new cohort of year 7s in September;
  • Our school celebrated being one of only two schools nationally achieving the international schools award 7 times in a row;
  • A fabulous Open Evening in September and 6th Form Convention in November – supported by so many students;
  • Welcoming a new set of sixth formers into our Year 12;
  • Senior prize giving;
  • The Heritage Open Evening hosted by Mr Harrod and Mr Williams;
  • The parental engagement events;
  • The celebration of the European Day of Languages;
  • The amazing Project X team;
  • The Year 8, 9 and 10 students work on construction week;
  • The Year 7 foundation service;
  • The essay writing workshops at Lincoln University;
  • The Spanish trip and the Berlin trip;
  • The Slam Jam Performers;
  • Sarah, Eleanor, Erin and Kelechi being selected to take part in the Females into Industry Challenge;
  • Year 10 geographers going to Skegness;
  • The Disneyland Paris trip;
  • Year 9 linguists working with the RAF;
  • The plastic bottle campaign led by our environmental group;
  • Year 12 working with Limitless Education;
  • The Year 7 nerf tournament;
  • Max reaching the finals of the under 14s Road to Wimbledon Tennis Championship;
  • Sports day;
  • Work experience for Year 10;
  • Joe representing England under 15 Touch Rugby in the European Championships;
  • Max and Molly starring for the Midlands Tigers;
  • Lewis representing GB at the French National Canoe marathon;
  • The lost witch workshop;
  • Gaining the gold Caring to Learn award;
  • Inktober and Technovember;
  • Poppy’s commendation at the Foyle Young Poets of the Year awards;
  • Freya’s performance at the show cross event;
  • Charlie being selected for the U15 County cricket squad;
  • The ROAR meetings;
  • Ollie’s performance at the boxing competition in Congleton;
  • Year 11 students and their mock exams, results day and interview day;
  • The fabulous cast of the Variety Performance and the summer showcase - for all their effort and time – you are such an asset to your school.

That list is not for what has happened at LCHS in a decade, nor a year. It is just two terms of events and activities, and I’m sure there are others. Thank you to all of the people who made everything happen that enriched our school during those terms – it is you who make this school what it is.

There will be many more opportunities for you to get involved next term – so what are you going to do – be a part of it – or watch everyone else soak up all of these wonderful things and experiences?

The phrase ‘2020’ is used when you have perfect vision, but when you look forward into the year 2020, can you see perfectly what you want the year to look like? For some of you, it will focus on exams, university, jobs, college, or what options to take at KS4. Others may also be worried about wider things such as the environment, or Brexit. Whatever your vision for what 2020 should be, try to see clearly what you can do to make sure that it is the year that you want it to be.

One thing is for sure, 2020 will come and go, and while we are here, in this moment – right now – we can decide to take on the challenges each one of us will face as a group, school or a community and make sure that 2020 is one to remember for the right reasons. So, what are you going to be proud of when we are sitting back here this time next year?

If you feel that things don’t always go your way – here is my advice to you for the year ahead:

  • Look to yourself for the answers first
  • Along with your privileges, take the responsibilities
  • Find ways through rather than hurdles to stop you

Be impressed by:

  • Kindness
  • Honesty
  • Unselfish generosity
  • Humility
  • Optimism
  • Courage to dare and dream
  • Integrity

2020 will be the fourth consecutive record breaking year for LCHS – what will your part in our success be?

I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a 2020 which really makes a positive difference to the community.

Thank you
