Year 11 Prom

Wednesday night saw our Year 11s arrive in style to Farleigh Golf Course in Warlingham for their Prom. Whilst there was no theme per se, the room was beautifully decorated in white and gold, and the grounds provided the most beautiful backdrop for photos as the sun set in the distance.

The students certainly dressed to impress, and arrived in array of vehicles from Hummers to Limousines. With live entertainment throughout the night from DJ Stutz and Demolition Sound, everyone certainly danced the night away! It was a fantastic turnout by both students and staff, and a great opportunity to celebrate all of the hard work put in by all this year.

It has been a privilege to see this cohort of students through and an honour to organise their end of year party! I look forward to seeing all of the students on Thursday 23rd August to collect their GCSE results, where I am sure there will be smiles and celebrations all round as their hard work and dedication pays off.

Assistant Principal and Head of Year 11
