It is an important day in our school calendar today – as we say a fond farewell to our Year 11 cohort. The pupils enjoyed an emotional assembly this morning, led by their Head of Year Mr Owen and they left with their heads held high – ready to take their next steps in life. The year group have done themselves, you as parents/carers and the school community proud. They have played a significant part in Lord Derby Academy’s journey of success. They are now leaving our school fully prepared for education post-16, apprenticeships and the world of work.
I would like to thank you as parents for all your support over the past five years and I would also like to thank Miss Morrison, Mr Owen, Mrs Whitby, the team of form tutors and all other staff who supported and guided the pupils as they progressed through the school.
There are still a small number of exams remaining but our Year 11s can now look forward to the Prom on 28th June. On behalf of all the staff at LDA, I would like to wish the Class of 2018 every success for the future.
Miss V Gowan
