IT’S HARD TO SAY GOODBYE!

We are very proud of all the Year 11 pupils for their determination, resilience, and wonderful teamwork over the past year(s). Throughout the two lockdowns, the young people at our school have continued to work hard, progress and attain. It has been amazing to see how they have embraced all the changes over the last year and yet still each one of them have been highly successful.
All Year 11s have graduated with 5 or more qualifications including English and math and now begin the transition to either our 6th form or a college of their choice. We look forward to seeing how they progress and develop through to work and adulthood in the years to come.
It is also hard to say goodbye to our little school site at Croydon, that has served us all very well over the past years and was like a big family home away from home for the pupils and staff. It is a central aim of Serenity School to embrace a culture at school of family, based on inclusion and equality, independence, and self-worth. As we prepare for the move to our new school campus at Rowans Hill, Chipstead, Couldson, we will as ever work hard to ensure we keep the nurture feel of the small school setting at Croydon yet with greater space and facilities improve our curriculum further and challenge our pupils to even greater heights.
As we plan for the move, we have also redesigned our curriculum to support wider participation of pupils in our school community. See our new prospectus for more detail. You might just recognise some of the young gentlemen! School perspective
We also had an amazing summer term, so please check out the Summer Newsletter
Wishing you a relaxing and peaceful summer!

Quarantine Quests:

During this time we encourage the school community to do things that will help you to boost your well-being and mental health. We have enjoyed hearing stories about our pupils cooking and gardening as well as taking nature walks while at home. Learning takes many forms and for many of our boy practical learning is key. We encourage parents to not only complete work packs and guided learning shared by school but also play boardgames, go for long walks, cook new exciting meals, meditate or even learn a new craft like knitting!

We are really pleased to of been sent some beautiful photos taken by Ross in year nine. The pictures really brightened up our day! If you have any pictures that you would like to share with us showing us what the boys are getting up to during quarantine please email them to office@serenityschool.org.uk
