Spectacular send-off for students at prom

From tuxedos to tiaras, top-of-the-range sports cars and gorgeous gowns, leaving proms provided a spectacular send-off for Highfields’ Year 11 and Sixth Form students.

Year 11 students turned on the style for their celebration at the Grand Station, in Wolverhampton City Centre, whilst Sixth Form students enjoyed a night of festivities at The Mount Hotel in Tettenhall.

Mrs N Clifton, Head of Upper School at Highfields, said: “The Year 11 prom was a wonderful celebration of the end of the school year for our students who have worked so hard towards their GCSEs.

“The event gave our Year 11 students the chance to let their hair down and enjoy themselves in style after all of the hard work they have put into their exams.

“There were some wonderful outfits and modes of transport on the night. It was the spectacular send-off the students deserved.”

The proms marked the end of the school year for students, who are now awaiting the results of their GCSE and A-Level exams before moving on to the next chapter of their lives.

Following the prom celebrations, all Year 11 students returned to school for their emotional Leavers’ Assembly, where awards were handed out to honour special achievements or particular events.

Students who have achieved three 'Crème de la Crème' nominations during Year 11 were given special recognition at the event. Each Crème de la Crème nomination was given as a result of students achieving all green progress reviews. Those who were recognised include Ekrahh Dawood, Armanjot Kailley, Jasmine Kaur, Ryiana Munroe, Parez Namiq, Amit Ohri, Surina Patel, Tamzin Sandhu, Gurkeerat Sandhu, Sanjna Saroop, Jasraj Sidhu, Alix Sutherland, Jared Tuckwell, Simran Uppal, Amy Williams, Devon Nelson, Anup Sharma, Pritpal Marway, Jacob Davis, Sahli Wahbi and Megan Billen. Students were also recognised for achieving 100% attendance during Year 11. 

Mrs Clifton added: “I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate our students on the incredibly mature way in which they approached their GCSEs.

“It has been a pleasure to see them mature, grow and develop into such confident, talented and skilled young adults. We look forward to seeing them in August for their results before they move on to the next chapter in their lives."
