I would just like to thank all staff, students and visitors who have made our afternoon tea event with members of our local community a huge success.

Special thanks to all of the staff who helped and supported us to ensure the event went off perfectly and those of you who popped in for a cuppa!

The biggest stars were all of the year 9 students, especially Josh, Melike, Daisy, Koen and Harry- everyone was blown away with their dedication to the event!

Reading the numerous postcards the guests filled in we have achieved today what we set out to; getting two generations “together for tea” and saying wonderful things about our students and school.

Some examples below,:-

“I have enjoyed my afternoon. The cooking is very tasty and varied and I have learned lots. At 91, I have seen many changes and today for the better.”

“A most enjoyable afternoon, very tasty food nicely presented. Good to talk to polite students and I hope all of their dreams come true.”

“Thank you so much we have had an amazing afternoon! Your hall and tables were beautiful- It was like walking into a wedding! The pupils were so polite and attentive, their baking skills were professional and delicious! The pupils were amazing and music was excellent. We felt very welcome. Thanks from all at Percy Court.”

“Very welcoming staff and pupils who were friendly and sociable. The room was tastefully decorated and the homemade food was delicious. Thank you for inviting me.”
