WNAT school leavers celebrate in style

Year 11 leavers returned to a WNAT school to find the premises had been transformed into a casino for their end-of-year Prom, complete with balloon archway entrance.

Springwood High School’s Class of 2024 arrived suitably attired for the celebration, with evening suits, ball gowns and cocktail dresses all on colourful display.

They were delivered to Springwood in equal style, with a range of diverse transport to be seen outside the school, from classic cars and vintage motors, to mopeds, motorbikes, a lorry and a horse-drawn carriage. One student even arrived on horseback, riding sidesaddle in a flowing dress.

Over the course of the evening, the graduates enjoyed roulette tables, classic arcade machines and racing car simulators, as well as a dance machine and  DJ, while refreshments included pizza and sweets.

Also on offer was a photobooth, which proved popular with partygoers eager to commemorate the occasion.

“It was an evening of celebration for an exceptional year group,” said Rebecca Davies-Mays, Assistant Head and Head of Year 11 at Springwood, which is part of the West Norfolk Academies Trust.

“They have not only risen to every challenge set, but often they have excelled and surpassed expectations.”

“They have worked extremely hard for their GCSE exams and were very deserving of this Prom,” she continued.

“They should be very proud of what they have achieved at Springwood over the past five years – I am sure they will achieve phenomenal results. We wish them all the best for the future.”
