Each year the diocese invite Year 6 leavers to attend a service of thanksgiving. Five hundred pupils joined together to share the experience this July. The theme was ‘Aspirations and Hope’. We took a 3D model of the school logo to represent our school during the service. Two pupils carried our banner as part of a procession, with other schools which was received with lots of positive comments. One of our pupils was chosen from all the schools, to help the Director of Education, Chris Penn and participate in part of the service. We were very proud that a pupil from Broadbottom had this wonderful opportunity.

Death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
Following the announcement from Buckingham palace that the queen had died on Thursday 8th September 2022, we wanted to participate in some historical traditions.
A book of condolence was opened, for all the pupils to sign to share a thought, prayer, picture or signature to give thanks for the Queens life.
The rain may have fallen and the field wet, but it didn’t stop us at BB from having an indoor sports day, with team Tigers, Lions and Panthers competing for the annual cup.
