A rare picture of our 6th formers outside Tate Britain on their annual trip down to London. Everything was going so smoothly - well sort of- when Jenny and her friends discovered the Saatchi Gallery was actually closed. Whoops. And then, to top it all, our party leader, (who will remain nameless), leaped on to an early ferry leaving the rest of us stranded in the wet and windy conditions on the South Bank to fend for ourselves. In a tide of emotion the member of staff in question - long hair, long legs and a figure to die for - was rumored to be heard singing 'I'm riding along on the crest of a wave ...' as she made her way up the Thames to Tate Modern without us.
On behalf of staff members: Mrs Johnson, Mrs Callcut, Miss Bailey, Mrs Shipley, Mr Haggett, Mr Lewin, Miss Bailey and Mrs Jones....
