Class of 2024 didn't let election fever overshadow their big night when both events clashed last Thursday.  The year group certainly knew how to celebrate their years at Penwortham Priory Academy in style, no matter what colour they were wearing!

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 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, campervans and tractors to motorbikes and a cavalcade of sports cars. We even had a trio on mobility scooters - one that Mrs Scully and Mrs Bailey couldn't resist posing with. The photographer was ready to capture the moment with proud parents looking on. 

Head of Year 11, Mrs Bailey, 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 2024's time at Priory. We look forward to seeing everyone again on results day, Thursday, 22 August.

All photos taken at the event have been uploaded to the Year 11 Teams where pupils can download the full size copies or parents can email Mrs Yates, Communications & Marketing Manager at j.yates@priory.lancs.sch.uk with a screenshot of the images you require.
