The clouds may have been grey and lowering but the rain held off and the sun even made an occasional appearance as college celebrated the arrival of summer with the now traditional Fayre. Held in the college grounds during lunchtime, old favourites such as a tombola, hook a duck and quoits, shared the fun with more modern entertainments, including giant jenga, a large-scale version of noughts and crosses, and a raucously supported penalty shoot-out.

Music was provided by the steel pan band from Loreto Chorlton, and the college funk and soul band. To the delight of our students, and the surprise of a large number of Year 10 pupils from some of our feeder high schools who were attending a debating event, ice cream and candyfloss were not only available but also free!

The whole event, coordinated by Head of Hall Mr Leach, was well supported by students and staff alike, and made for a relaxing and informal end to a hard year’s teaching.
