The college’s two previous Year 11’s missed out on their prom night due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Year 11 lead, Mrs Mustill, said: “The beautiful dresses, smart suits and amazing outfits did not disappoint. 

“It was a pleasure to be able to mark the end of the exam period with our precious students, and, more importantly, the dance floor was busy for the entire evening!"
