On Friday 6 May, the entire Northampton High School community came together to celebrate their 144th birthday. With the school’s birthday this year falling on a Bank Holiday (2 May), they were delighted to come together as a community to mark the occasion in school.
The day started with the customary celebratory assembly. An audience of staff and students were treated to some wonderful pieces of music on the piano from the school’s own junior pupils, before the Head, Mrs O’Doherty, led a presentation on the school’s history. A rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’ was then performed by Director of Music Mr Nathan on the piano with vocal support from the bleachers, before the special birthday cake was cut. In what is one of Northampton High’s favourite traditions, the cake was cut by Head Girl, Chelsea, and the school’s youngest Reception pupil, Hanaa, and at break time students were treated to special Northampton High birthday cupcakes – which were very well received!
Happy Birthday Northampton High School – and here’s to the next 144!
