Prom Celebrations 2017


On Thursday 29 June the 2017 cohort of Year 11 pupils of King Alfred School celebrated the end of their GCSE exams and Secondary schooling in some style with a Formal Prom at Batch Country House, Lympsham.

Over 25 staff and 200 pupils pulled out all the stops in terms of style and class and looked amazing in their finest.

The evening began at 6.30pm with the arrival in all manner of vintage and modern vehicles. Following photographs around the stunning grounds Year 11 then enjoyed a three course meal inside a glittering ballroom decked in silver and blue. As well as further photographs, raffle and a disco Year 11 were also treated to local band 'Drop the mic' (which includes three students from the year group) who entertained the room with songs as varied as 'Johnny B. Goode' by Chuck Berry to Beyonce's Crazy in Love'!

The dancing then continued until midnight.

"It has been lovely to see everyone this evening having such a great time" said Mr Lockett, Head of Year. "These students have come a very long way in the last five years and they really deserve credit for their achievements. Tonight was about having fun and marking a very special milestone in their lives."

King Alfred Sixth form celebrated their annual prom at The Grand Pier, Weston-super-Mare on Friday 30th June. Over a hundred Sixth Form students and staff members attended the stylish event to say their final goodbyes to the Year 13 students, poised to take up their University places and Apprenticeship positions this September.

The memorable evening was organised by the hard-working Sixth Form student committee with the whole hearted support of Miss Watkins. All attendees were blown away with the venue, the interpretation of the Space Theme and the Regency Suite with its stunning backdrop of the Weston-Super-Mare seafront.

The evening was full of fantastic food and entertainment with an opening speech from Year 13 student Sam Cain, followed by the latest instalment of Star Wars Episode with KAS subtitles and Miss Hewlitt’s unbelievable cover of Amy Winehouse’s Valerie. Towards the end of the night, Miss Watkins unveiled an emotional slideshow that compiled all their achievements from earlier years and the Sixth Form. Mr Jonathan Gaskell, Head of Sixth Form congratulated students on their hard work ethic during the year and said they would be sorely missed.

Overall, the night was considered “The perfect way to say goodbye”. The staff at The Grand Pier were full of praise for the students, mentioning how polite and sophisticated they were throughout the night.

A massive thank you to everyone who attended and to the staff involved.
