End of an era
Today marks the last school day of Tamarside Community College, from september the 1st we become the Marine Academy Plymouth, alot of old staff came in yesterday to join in the celebrations but i feel today will be far more melancholy due to the amount of staff who are leaving us.
Its a time of change, big change, with a complete overhaul of the staffing structure, school day, curriculum and more.
Tamarside has been open for 21 years and theres a number of staff still here who have been here from the start.
Kids are dismissed at 12:30 today then staff have the last supper and speeches from 1pm with a booze cruise arrange from 4pm.
I myself was a student here, spent 6 years hear and for the most of it really enjoyed it, ive spent a futher 9 years as staff and its been a rocky path with alot of changes but even more so now, we have an incredible amount of work this summer, so much so that the 4 of us have each cancelled our individual leave in order to get the work done.
The overhaul of the school starts soon where everything Tamarside related is being removed including the last 20 years worth of framed yr11 photos which were mounted in a corridor and are no longer needed (read wanted) every display on every wall are being removed, the Academy really want nothing to do with the History of this place, which is a shame.

Such a shame, are you staying on?
Will be interested to hear what you say in a year's time.

Our school was opened in 1912 and we still have some original members of staff - getting them to use a computer is a pain!

Make sure you are in a union as you will probaby be TUPE'ed into the new Academy and there are regulations what an employer can and can't do during the transfer of undertaking process.
