Class of 2023's big night out arrived on Thursday 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 with sharp suits and stunning gowns.

The event, held at Bartle Hall, 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 fire engines, HGVs and tractors to a cavalcade of sports cars. This year we had one young lady driving herself to the prom in her own 'mini'.  The photographer was ready to capture the moment with proud parents looking on. 

Head of Year 11, Mrs Ham, along with the pupil-led Prom Committee spent many hours organising the event.  Awards, put together by the Committee, ensued after the meal. The evening tailed away with some moves 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 Class of 2023's time at Priory. 

We look forward to seeing everyone again on results day, Thursday, 24 August.

All photos taken at the event have been uploaded to the Year 11 Teams where pupils can download the full size copies.
