Plenty of glitz and glamour at Woldgate prom

Students from Woldgate College dressed up in their finest prom dresses and suits.

Nearly 200 year 11 students celebrated the end of the school year with a prom at The Royal York Hotel in York last Friday.

The prom was a chance for students to relax and have some fun after some tough exams recently.

Students arrived in style at the event, with some turning up in limousines, classic cars, fire engines and even the Magical Mystery Machine from Scooby Doo.

Woldgate headteacher Jonathan Britton said: “I always find it an absolute joy to attend the end of year prom and to celebrate with our pupils their many achievements over the last five years.

“This was the best prom I have ever attended, and I am now looking forward to welcoming back many of our students when they join Woldgate Sixth Form College in September, to continue their studies through to university and employment.”
