May Ball

Posted by on May 14, 2013 in News | No Comments

‘The best May Ball to date,’ was the unanimous verdict of staff who had the pleasure of accompanying Year 13 students from community school to their Leavers’ event at the Duke of Cornwall Hotel on the evening of Friday 10th May.

The students certainly ‘dressed to impress’ and, although initially disappointed that the rain and wind prevented a photocall outside, went on to make the most of the grandeur of the hotel’s foyer and sweeping staircase where many group photos were taken to help capture the excitement and enjoyment of the occasion.

The students and staff were then treated to a delicious three course dinner in the beautifully decorated Ball Room, before they danced the night away to hits old and new, which formed the soundtrack for the seven years the students had spent together at

Speaking after the event, Headteacher, Isobel Bryce, said, ‘As always our young people were an absolute credit to their families and to our school. I cannot believe their time at is coming to an end but I hope the May Ball will have given them many more wonderful memories to take away with them, as they move on in their lives and careers.”

The Ball was organised by Nick Scantlebury, Head of 6th Form, Laura Wilkinson, Deputy Head of 6th Form, and Sue Briggs, 6th Form Administrator, with the help and assistance of the 6th Form students committee.
