Headteacher's Address Year 7 Foundation Service at Lincoln Cathedral, Friday 29th September 2017.
Good afternoon everyone and welcome to this very special occasion.
I have mentioned before that to be a part of the Lincoln Christ’s Hospital School community is a very special thing. You are the next generation of our 1000 year history who will go on to achieving great things within school and beyond. You are walking the path of thousands of great people who have gone on to make a positive difference to our world.
This service this afternoon is a part of our tradition. Our connection with the Cathedral is something we are very proud of and this is one of the ways that we, as a school, welcome you to our community and it reminds us all – both students and staff - that we are all a part of something which is very special, and also reminds us not to take this for granted.
Over the next seven years, you will have a lot of amazing experiences and among these you will have the ups and downs that life throws at you. You have put your trust in us to provide you with the best possible chance in life and, because of this, we will be with you every step of the way – through these seven years – helping you achieve, make well informed choices and, possibly most importantly, never giving up on you. We will tackle every challenge together.
So, here we are at the beginning of your secondary career and I would like to congratulate you all on the success you have found already in the first four weeks at school. You have settled in well and are firmly embedded in the LCHS family.
Never forget why you choose to come to LCHS, never forget the badge you are wearing – wear it with pride! Never stop believing that you can achieve – welcome to Lincoln Christ’s Hospital School!
