Dinner jackets were donned and ball gowns shimmered as Hipperholme Grammar School Parent Teacher Association enjoyed a Casino Royale-style ball.

Guests were greeted with a Champagne and canape reception as they arrived at The Crystal Ballroom at Bertie’s Banqueting Suite, Elland.

There followed a sumptuous banquet.

The evening, organised by the PTA, then went off with a bang as Diana Ross tribute act Jacky Webbe made her entrance in a sparkling scarlet dress after dinner.

One of the high spots of the evening was when outgoing head master Dr John Scarth joined her on stage to duet with her in “Endless Love.”

The roulette wheels spun throughout the evening as guests enjoyed a flutter.

All money raised was donated to the school and the Forget Me Not Fund, which will run a hospice for children from the Calderdale and Kirklees area.
