Smithdon students celebrate in blaze of glory

There was much excitement when a fire engine drew up outside Knight’s Hill Hotel in King’s Lynn – but, fortunately, it hadn’t been summoned to tackle a blaze.

Instead, the emergency vehicle was there to help deliver our Year 11 leavers to this year’s Prom in eye-catching style, with other conveyances including motorbikes, limousines, and even a tractor.

Friends and family were there to greet the Class of 2023, who arrived at the hotel in sparkling form, wearing a range of evening dress, from suits and cocktail dresses to full-length gowns.

A yellow-and-white colour scheme had been chosen by the Year 11 Leadership Team, and tables at the venue were decorated with yellow and white balloons.

Ninety-three students attended the event, where they were joined by many of their teachers, who were keen to celebrate the students’ success.

The evening featured a three-course meal and a disco, as well as a sweet cart loaded with traditional confectionery, and a photo booth, which allowed the party-goers to commemorate the occasion.

“It was great to celebrate our students’ end of schooling at Smithdon High School,” said Steve Chapman, Assistant Head.
