14 July 2022

After a three year hiatus, the tradition of the Year 11 prom was finally back on the curriculum.

Class of 2022's big night out arrived last Wednesday when the year group gathered to celebrate their years at Penwortham Priory Academy in style. These occasions are renowned for their glitz and glamour and this year was no exception. 

The event, held at Charnock Farm, Leyland, was the perfect opportunity for the hardworking Year 11s to let their hair down after the exam season and a chance to say goodbye to the staff who have nurtured, challenged and supported them through their school days.

The pupils arrived in spectacular fashion in vehicles of many shapes and sizes, from stretched limousines to army jeeps, HGVs and camper vans to a cavalcade of sports cars.  The photographer was ready to capture the moment with proud parents looking on. 

Head of Year 11, Mrs Eastham, along with the pupil-led Prom Committee spent many hours organising the event.  Awards, put together by the pupils, ensued after the meal. The evening tailed away with some shapes being thrown on the dance floor and many farewell hugs at the end of a very memorable night.

It was a fabulously deserved finale to round off their time at Priory particularly following the recent challenging years. 

We look forward to seeing everyone again on results day, Thurs, 25 August.

A link has been emailed to parents of the pupils that attended so you may view and download all the professional photos from the event.  If this hasn't arrived, please email j.yates@priory.lancs.sch.uk stating the pupil's name.
