Year 11 Prom

Added: July 1st, 2014

The Huddersfield Rugby Union Football Club at Lockwood was the choice of our students again this year for the Year 11 leaver’s prom. The venue provides amazing space and privacy and is an impressive setting for the ‘paparazzi’ lining the driveway to take photos of the students arriving in all their finery.

On a glorious summers evening you could hear the purring engines of the most amazing array of vehicles as they cruised down the driveway.  Students who we are so used to seeing in their school uniforms appeared in flowing, glitzy gowns and dapper suits looking all of a sudden like young adults! Staff scrubbed up well too and had joined in on the occasion by wearing their best attire!

Greeted with a welcome drink the party made their way into the Waterloo suite to enjoy a delicious 3 course meal.  Feeling replete the crowd gathered on the balcony to watch fireworks light up the sky to the sound of oooh, aaah from the excited audience. Next up was the voting for Prom King and Queen 2014. Reece Robertshaw and Jordan Earnshaw were announced as being this year’s winners and wore their crowns and sashes with pride throughout the evening. The DJ launched into action and the dancing continued until midnight when many could be seen discarding their heels and tottering down the drive on the journey home. 

The students were a real credit to the school and to themselves during the night and we wish them well in their venture into adulthood.
