Every year at the Leaver’s Service, the children of Stanhope Barrington along with the other staff say farewell to the Year 6 children moving up to secondary school. Mr. Myers takes time to reflect on the experience of each Year 6 student and their time spent at the school. These tributes include special memories and often move the audience to tears and laughter. This year the children of Year 6 have been given the opportunity to say goodbye to Stanhope Barrington.
I will miss this school and the teachers, although I am looking forward to going to secondary school in the autumn. -Callum

I am writing this letter to say how much I will miss primary. I will miss all my friends and teachers but I am really looking forward to going to secondary. I had the best time ever at primary school. It’s the best school ever. -Jodie
When I came to this school in year 5 I was a little behind but I soon began doing Year 6 work! This school is extremely helpful, understanding and kind. I will be very sad to leave. I know all the children who come here will have the best memories of their time here, just like me. -Senna
I have really enjoyed primary but I think I am ready to move on. I will miss this school a lot. -Eleanor

I wish I didn’t have to leave this amazing school. -Dan
I am very sad to leave Stanhope Barrington because it is the best school I have ever been to! Mrs. Cross has really helped me catch up with the other Year 6 kids and I can’t thank her enough. Even though I have only been in this school for 8 months, I am incredibly miserable to leave. I hope that this amazing school will succeed in the rest of the years. -Millie
Best wishes to our Year 6 children for the future! We will miss you, too.
