Going for gold at Smithdon Prom

A colourful array of suits, ball gowns and cocktail dresses was on show when our Class of 2024 gathered to celebrate their graduation.

Eighty-four Year 11 students from Smithdon High School arrived in style at Knight’s Hotel in Lynn on Thursday 27 June, where families and well-wishers had gathered to greet them.

Vehicles delivering the partygoers included sports cars and classic motors, as well as motorbikes, two limousines, a police car and even a double-decker bus.

The group were joined by many of their teachers at the event, where the classic gold-and-black themed decor had been chosen by our Year 11 Student Leadership Team.

Tables were decorated with black and gold balloons, while refreshments on offer included a buffet barbecue and a sweet cart laden with traditional confectionery.

Laminated tickets were provided to commemorate the occasion, while there was also a photo booth, which gave the students further opportunity to preserve their memories.

“Everyone enjoyed the evening,” said Dan Ward, Assistant Head and Head of Years 10 and 11 at Smithdon, which is part of the West Norfolk Academies Trust.

“It was great to celebrate our students’ end of schooling at Smithdon High School.”
