‘Grand’ Time For All at Year 11 Prom

The College’s Year 11 students travelled to the Grand Hotel in Torquay on Thursday 29 June to attend the annual Prom to celebrate the end of their GCSE exams.

Arriving in style in an array of outlandish vehicles, including fire engines, super cars and vintage rides, students welcomed each other on the steps of the venue in their finest attire, before retiring to the hotel’s Devonshire Suite to dance the night away.

The event, a much anticipated date in the College’s calendar, also included speeches, awards and raffle prizes, including the top prize of five driving lesson vouchers from Christine’s School of Motoring. Students also took advantage of the opportunity to have official portraits taken by Maria Holmes Photography. The Prom Queen and King titles were also announced; Alayna Foot and Lewis Starkie were voted as this year’s winners, performing their royal duties including cutting the celebration cake at the end of the evening.

The evening was an incredible success; with Prom organiser and Head of Curie House, Tracy Dommett saying of the evening: “We are all extremely proud of our Year 11 students; this year they have worked exceptionally hard in the run up to their GCSE exams. The Prom was all about celebrating them and the end of Year 11, as well as looking ahead to their bright futures. We wish them all a fantastic summer.”
