After stepping inside, students were able to enjoy drinks, canapes and entertainment on the old palace garden terrace, followed by a two-course dinner and dancing in the Hayward Theatre later on into the evening. 

Head of King’s Ely Senior, Johnathan Shaw, said: “It was a delight to celebrate with pupils and parents at the sixth form leavers’ midsummer ball. 

“It was a reminder of how long many parents have been loyal supporters of the school. Over 20 years for some.
