Kineton High School celebrated one of its most successful years ever at a special awards ceremony, and at the same time said goodbye to its longstanding head teacher.

The school held the event on April 10 to pay tribute to the outstanding achievements of students who took external exams last year.

Staff and pupils also said farewell to head teacher Julia Morris who is retiring at the end of the academic year after 12 years at the school.

Communications officer Helen Stephenson said: “We were delighted to be joined by our guests of honour the Francis brothers, all ex-students who took turns to present the awards to our latest pupils.

“They all spoke about their time at the school, their happy memories and the many skills and experiences they have taken on into their lives.” The evening was opened by chair of governors David Savory who talked about the successes of the school, paying tribute to the long-serving staff and the journey the school has made.

Mrs Stephenson said: “The evening closed with a moving speech from Julia. She spoke of the pride she has in the students, staff and wider community, about the journey the school had taken, the strength of the family ethos and how leading the school had fulfilled her dreams of being a headteacher.”
