The Mary Rose 2016 Prom was an absolutely fantastic event which shows how well we all know how to party! We applauded the achievements of our students, in particular our leavers all of whom had gained a wide range of qualifications and accreditation including BTEC’s for the first time - so we really did have a great reason to celebrate.
Students arrived in true style to walk down the red carpet - fire engines, hummers and convertibles with chauffeurs! The Marriott provided a lovely setting and we had so many families, staff and fiends of the school that the rooms were overflowing. The tables looked stunning decked out with candy trees to match the pink and silver theme. We had a first this year thanks to one of our families who provided an inflatable photo booth complete with all sorts of props. It was great fun and so nice to have an instant memento, there are some particularly good photos of the senior leadership team! Huge thanks to the Rowlands family for their generosity. Following a delicious three course meal Lin Turner, our former Head of Sixth form was on hand to give students their certificates and we bid our leavers farewell. There were not many dry eyes at this point but once the students hit the dance floor there was no looking back…..
It took a bit of time to recover from all the partying, there were certainly a bleary eyes the following morning but we are already looking forward to 2017!
