After weeks of planning, it was time for the Fifth Form to attend their Night at the Oscars. Pupils arrived suitably dressed for the occasion in formal dinner suits and an array of long gowns, and enjoyed cocktails and photographs in the quad. After making their way up the red carpet, they were treated to a delicious three course meal and disco. The Dining Hall had been transformed with lights and gold decorations into a magical setting. It was a fabulous end of term treat and a fitting celebration of the end of the GCSE exam period. With the venue for the Dinner being our impressive Sixth Form Centre, the evening was filled with a sense of anticipation for the pupils' next exciting move into the Cokethorpe Sixth Form.
'On Friday 23 June the entire Fifth Form joined together to celebrate the end of our GCSEs by dressing up and attending the prom. The evening started with the students receiving drinks as they milled around the quad in either graceful gowns or smart suits, having their pictures taken with friends and form groups. The prom had an Oscars theme which involved entering the dining hall on a red carpet! We received an incredible 3 course meal served by the hardworking catering staff, the main consisted of a beautifully cooked steak and fries, all plates were empty by the end. A filled up fifth form made their way up to the sixth form centre which had been turned into an entertaining disco with a fantastic DJ and had a fun photo booth where pupils lined up to take funny pictures with friends, which can be kept and looked back upon in years to come. It was a night to remember.
A massive thank you should be given to Mrs Orton and the team of fifth form pupils who organised the incredible evening!'
