Year 11 Prom

It's almost time for this year's Year 11 Prom......

Dear Parents/Carers,

It's almost time for this year's Year 11 Prom, which is being held at Branston Golf & Country Club's Pavilion (postcode DE14 3DP) next Thursday, 7th July.

Branston Golf & Country Club have asked us to inform parents/carers that this is an alcohol free event for all students attending. However, a pay bar is available all evening, allowing students to purchase soft drinks.

Students are encouraged to arrive no earlier than 6.30pm as this is peak time for the public using the club's facilities such as the gym and spa. Could I politely request that families coming so see their sons and daughters, car share where possible, as parking spaces will be limited due to us requiring access for the student cavalcade that is the norm at these proceedings.

Certain areas of the car park will be cordoned off for the exclusive use of students arriving in their various modes of transport and this has to happen as smoothly as possible in order for the night to run to schedule. Security staff will direct vehicles to the appropriate area, for drop off and the traditional arrival photographs. Your co-operation in this matter will be greatly appreciated by all.

For parents/carers collecting their sons and daughters at the end of the evening, please be as punctual as possible, as the venue will lock its doors at 11.30pm sharp, and all customers have to be off site by this time. The official finishing time of the Prom is 11pm.

Thursday promises to be a wonderfully glamorous and enjoyable evening, one which my Year 11 students, staff and yourselves thoroughly deserve for all of the hard work throughout the entirety of the GCSE programme.

Look forward to seeing you all on the night.

Mr Easton
Head of Year 11
