The Year 11 Prom has been booked and promises to be a new, exciting and fun take on our traditional end of year celebration.

The Prom is due to be staged on Monday 1st July 2019 at Branston Golf & Country Club. The tickets are on sale via ParentPay for £35 and the cut-off date for buying tickets is Monday 6th May so that we can confirm numbers with the venue.

We are looking to add a touch more magic and drama to the evening so it is an even more special night for our Year 11s who are putting in so much effort as we move towards the summer exams.

This year will see the disco replaced by a live band – who will take requests – though a disco will also run during their breaks too so there is no excuse not to hit the dance floor. Elsewhere, we will be staging a casino which will see students competing with chips to win prizes.

Additionally there will be tasty food, heaps of decorations, glamorous arrivals, photographs and much, much more. There will be further ‘reveals’ through this term to make sure students have an extra special Prom.

The Prom is very much a celebration and a reward for those students who buy-in to their studies and give 100% in every way in their final weeks of the school. Of course, like all rewards, it is only available to those who deserve it, so the school holds the right to withdraw the reward from any student who lets themselves and the school down. This would result in re-imbursal of the ticket price, but any additional costs lie with the student / parent – a real incentive to make sure standards are kept high.

In addition, the school runs a free Leavers’ Assembly to say ‘goodbye’, and more details on this will follow over the next few weeks. The same rules apply for this event as for the Prom.

Matt Allman, Headteacher, said: “We want to make this Prom the best ever – building on the most popular elements from previous years. There is already a great buzz about it and we anticipate this continuing as more ‘reveals’ come out. It is a special night, for special students, and celebrates those who have reached the end of their compulsory school years and represent the ‘Class of 2019’.”
