The stunning Hazelwood Castle was the location for the Sherburn High School Prom on 29th June and what a wonderful evening it was! This year’s theme was ‘Enchanted Forest’ and the Prom Committee did an amazing job of decorating the room accordingly, it was crowned by a beautiful cake made and decorated by student Madeleine Smith’s mum Juliet.
The usual parade of cars was dominated by Mercedes and Range Rovers but the most unusual vehicle of the evening was a police van! North Yorkshire Police came to the rescue of four damsels in distress when the exhaust fell off their vintage car, leaving them stranded by the wayside; it was a huge shock when the van rolled up and the girls disembarked!
One of the highlights of the evening was the long awaited Prom Awards with accolades ranging from ‘Best Bromance’ to ‘Clumsiest Person’ and of course the much coveted Prom King and Queen which went to Steven Shepherd and Lauren Barnett, both brilliant students and very well deserved.
Head Teacher Maria Williams commented:
“Year 11 students have worked incredibly hard throughout their time at Sherburn High School and fully deserved this wonderful celebration – they are a credit to their families and to the school and were recognised as such by Ofsted with the school’s “GOOD” report. We look forward to welcoming them back in the Sixth Form and are sure that their GSCE results will be outstanding and once more place the school at the top of the league tables!”
