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, on June 27th. Sixth Form students enjoyed their prom at the same venue on July 11th, where a big screen was set up to allow prom-goers to watch England’s World Cup semi-final clash with Croatia.
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.
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.”
*School will be open for students to pick up their A-Level results on Thursday, August 16th and then GCSE results a week later on Thursday, August 23rd. School will be open from 9.30am on August 16th and 10.30am on August 23rd.
