Many other exciting traditions are enjoyed throughout the year, including our famous end-of-year Production, where our Year 6 pupils take centre stage in a performance which would not look out of place in the West End. Other highlights include our annual week-long residential visit to France and our fun-filled “Shop-til-you-drop” challenge where the children work in teams to arrange exciting activities across the school to raise money to buy a leaving gift for our new Reception class. These experiences develop life skills and prepare our pupils for the wide range of state and independent secondary schools that they move on to. Most importantly they leave all of us with wonderful memories of their time with us.
Whilst all our pupils’ time at St Mary Magdalen’s must come to an end, the close bonds that are made at our school mean that they are part of our community forever. We have many pupils who return to our school year after year to visit, support us with community projects, carry out work experience as they begin their future careers and even bring their own children to school as parents. A St Mary Magdalen’s pupil is truly a member of our school family for life.
