A huge crowd of well-wishers turned out for the Attleborough Academy Prom to witness the Year 11 students' arrivals onto the red carpet. The evening is a celebration of the students’ five years at the Academy and the end of their GCSEs. All the students dressed up in their finest attire and looked fantastic as they alighted onto the red carpet amidst flashing cameras and applause. The students arrived in a variety of stunning original vehicles ranging from tractors, limousines, sports cars, classic cars and even a golden carriage pulled by a human horse!
During the ‘Great Gatsby’ themed evening, which was begun with a welcoming address from Principal Mr Neil McShane, students enjoyed a wonderful time in their beautiful suits and frocks, with great food and dancing into the night to a disco ran by Head of House, Mr Justin Needs.
The exemplary planning and organisation of the event was carried out by a team of Attleborough Academy staff and students led by Miss Parks (Inclusion Centre Manager) and Mrs Cushing (Head of Lower School), with Garry Baisden (Infrastructure Engineer) and Stefan Middlebrook (Senior ICT Technician) who also ran the ‘Mocktails’ soft drink bar during the evening.
Students and staff voted for their choice of student in each of a range of categories and towards the end of the evening, Mr McShane led the award ceremony and then wished all the students well for their futures.
