Ethan Freeman - Head StudentI am proud to say that I have been a student of Sunbury Manor for the past 4 years, even though that may sound like a long time it really does go fast.
I can remember 5 years ago listening to the speeches from the head student and thinking to myself, wow, I want to be like them in the future - and now I am speaking to you as the head boy of this school. But I couldnât have done it without the amazing support from the staff of Sunbury Manor.
When I joined the school only one other person came from my primary school, you may think this would have been daunting, but right from the beginning I felt right at home and quickly made new friends in both my tutor group and the wider school.
Obviously as we all know, Covid has had a huge impact on school life the last 2 years but as things turn to normal the school is hoping to provide a great selection of opportunities from: trips in this country and abroad and a wide range after school clubs. These activities include sports teams like netball football and rugby, and If sports arenât your thing we have drama and music clubs which put on productions like the Christmas pantomime.
In year 9, I was lucky enough to go on the trip to France and Belgium where we visited battlefields, memorials, and my favourite the chocolate shop. However, no matter what your passions are the different departments will make sure there is something for you. Trips which have happened whilst I have been here are the Year 7 camp, several skiing trips around the world and we are hoping to go to the United Nations in New York which is a part of my citizenship GCSE.
Our school has a great environment to learn and progress - I have made many great friends and will take away countless incredible memories when I leave at the end of this year. I will always love being a part of Sunbury Manor School and I am honoured to be a part of its history.
