Prom season is upon us once more as schools gets ready to close their doors for the summer.

King’s School Sixth Formers and staff celebrated the end of an era with a glamorous dinner dance at the Hill Top Country House Hotel in Prestbury, while staff and students at All Hallows Catholic College enjoyed their own red carpet event at Cranage Hall in Holmes Chapel.

Dressed to the nines, the young men and women made sure they made the most of their well-deserved night after working hard for their A-Level exams.

Students at the school are now looking forward to heading off to some of Britain’s best universities.

The experience was a bittersweet one though as they will also be leaving some of their life-long friends as they go their separate ways.

The King’s School principal of Sixth Form Julie Cocker said: “This is one of the most enjoyable events in the school’s calendar when staff and students all mix as equals”.

Around 185 students and staff from All Hallows entered their prom via a celebrity style red carpet and were treated to a formal reception.

They then tucked into a special three-course dinner before dancing the night away to music of their choice.

Year 11 learning leader David Aspinall said the evening had created many happy memories.

He added: “The stunning and elegant array of colours and styles from the prom dresses was suitably matched by the suave and sophisticated formal attire of the young gentlemen, adding to the ambience of the evening.

“All the students and their teachers enjoyed the event.

“The next step is coming back in August to receive and celebrate their exam results, leading onto further study in our Sixth Form following their

chosen subjects at A-Level.”
