Oh what a night! Our lovely Year 8s were in their finery on Thursday evening, the girls looking stunning in their beautiful dresses and the boys very dapper in their dinner jackets. There was huge excitement as they gathered in the Front Hall for drinks and canapés, hundreds of photos and polite chatter with the staff and guests. Children and adults were mixed up for dinner and Year 8 were excellent company over three courses, a quiz, lots of whizzing balloons and party poppers and an amusing speech from Mr P on rules for good etiquette from bygone years. Then it was the moment all the pupils and a few very excitable staff had been waiting for – the disco – and the rest of the evening was spent in the Drawing Room boogying the night away with great enthusiasm.
A selection of informal photos are below. The professional photos will follow shortly.
