Welcome to Crompton House
Valedictory Services and Leavers Assemblies
During the last two weeks of this half-term we said our farewells to Year 11 and 13. The music at the Valedictory Services was excellent and the photographs from the students’ years at Crompton House brought back lots of good memories. At the Leavers Assemblies a number of awards were presented, after which the students were “clapped out” by the rest of the school.
CHS Brass Band
After their excellent playing at the Music for Youth Festival in Rochdale earlier this year, the school Brass Band has qualified for the National Festival at Birmingham Symphony Hall on Thursday 4th July. Many of our musicians will also be in Birmingham on the Friday and Saturday with the Borough music groups.
With pupils from Years 10, 11, 12 and 13 all sitting GCSE or A Level exams, Crompton House is a quieter place than usual! Year 7 and 8 had their exams before half-term, with Year 9 in the first week in June.
