Year 11 Prom Update

Dear Parent / Carer and Year 11 Students

It has become necessary, but not unexpected, to take the difficult decision to cancel the proposed Year 11 Prom on Friday 26th June 2020, due to the current and continuing climate that we face across the country.

Whilst we are disappointed that we have had to make this decision, we need to ensure that all refunds can be made so that no financial implications are faced by the school and by parents who have made bookings for the day.

However, we do still want to hold a large celebration event for this year group, so will start looking at an alternative date. At present, we are looking at an opportunity to hold an event in November, hoping that the country will have been able to loosen some of the restrictions on social distancing at this point
Once we have further information, we will share this at the earliest opportunity. We will continue to be guided by the latest government guidance.

Any parent that has already paid for a prom ticket for the June event will be refunded in the coming weeks.
I thank you for your continued support at this present time, which is difficult for everyone connected with the school.

Yours sincerely

Martyn Palfreyman
