On Wednesday 26th June, our current Year 11’s arrived at Whittlebury Hall to celebrate finishing their GCSE’s at Sponne. The evening began with students arriving in style, from classic sports cars to limousines and tractors to parent’s taxi’s! The students all looked very grown up and had certainly dressed to impress, for the Hollywood themed evening that lay ahead.
The room was decorated in classic black and gold colours, by students from the Prom committee and under the supervision of Miss Stone and Mrs Appleby and some incredibly helpful parents. The Year 11 band welcomed the students into the room with an opening set and did an amazing job at getting the night started! After a pleasant meal and lots of dancing in between courses, the DJ kicked in… this is where the real celebrations and ‘dance-offs’ commenced (!) and it was so great to see all of the students enjoying themselves. We almost needed a bigger dance floor!
Thank you to all staff for attending on the evening and joining in with the celebrations and to our photographers – Millie and Kara from 6th form and Shannon Lock (ex-student) for giving up their time. A Year 11 Prom group photo will be given to all students who attended on the night, when they collect their exam results in August. We would also like to say a huge thank you to John Anderson, (Director of Inspired design & print solutions) for kindly designing and producing the personalised wristbands, for the Year 11’s to keep as a memento from their Prom night.
We wish you all a wonderful summer and lots of luck in your next venture,
Mrs Appleby & Miss Stone.
