Students dazzle at prom night

Students marked the end of a successful five years at Rastrick High School with their prom.

Held at The Venue in Barkisland, around 240 Year 11 students put on their glad rags to enjoy the evening.

Students dazzled in their beautiful dresses and smart suits on a glorious summers evening and surprised with their methods of transport to the venue; which included a vintage bus and Bentley, a VW campervan, stretch limousines and a Top Gear Stig ‘look alike’ chauffeured convertible.

The Prom King and Queen were announced and Thomas Cornelly and Georgia Lowbridge were crowned on the night, while Fahad Aysan and Faiza Bano picked up the best dressed male and female awards.

The night was packed with smiles and laughs as students and staff enjoyed an excellent three course meal followed by dancing into the small hours.

For many Year 11 students this was their last school event, except for the eagerly anticipated results day on August 22. It was also an opportunity for them to say thank you to staff who had taught them and bid them fond farewells.

Leo Timmins, learning manager for Year 11 said: “Rastrick High School has regularly achieved excellent GCSE results and we expect nothing less from our current Year 11.

“Our year 11 prom was an outstanding success, the students were exceptional and the prom was a superb way to mark an important milestone in their lives and celebrate what has been a successful and enjoyable five years at Rastrick High School. My congratulations and thanks go out to the students and their families and all involved with this fantastic event.”
