Year 11 Leavers’ Ball & Farewell Assembly

This year, the Leavers’ Ball is to take place on Thursday 30th June 2016 at The Rendezvous Hotel near Skipton, starting at 7:00pm and finishing at 11.30pm. A ticket to the event will cost £35.00 and should be paid for online through ParentPay.  Coach transport is included in the ticket price and pick up/drop off will take place at regular stops on the way to and from the Ball. Please ensure that arrangements are in place for your son/daughter to be picked up from the drop-off point at the end of the evening.  Please keep in touch with your child on the evening  with regard to drop-off timings.  Food is also included in the price.

In order for your son/daughter to attend the Ball, you will need to tick ‘consent for medical care’ on ParentPay. We already have medical details on record but, if there are any change to these, please send details to the school office via your son/daughter’s Form Tutor.  Please also complete the form overleaf for consent to your son/daughter attending the ball, including a preferred drop off point, and make payment in full by Monday 6th June 2016.  If we do not receive a signed copy of the form, we will be unable to take your son/daughter on the evening of the Ball.

All students have received their ‘Passport to the Prom’ which will enable them to have the privilege of attending. Student behaviour, attendance, revision and attitude must be consistently maintained and any students who do not maintain these standards are at risk of their ticket being forfeited.

We will also be holding a farewell assembly for Year 11 on the morning of Thursday 30th June 2016, where students will be invited back into school in formal dress.  It is proposed that students travel in on their usual school bus, attend Form and then congregate in the hall for a presentation assembly.  Following the assembly, students will be allowed to go home.  Please ensure that arrangements have been made for your son/daughter to return home safely, as appropriate.  Students should have sorted out return of textbooks and locker keys by Thursday 30th June 2016.

All students have the opportunity to buy a ‘leavers’ hoodie.’ This is not compulsory but, should your son/daughter wish to purchase a hoodie, please complete and return the with their name, colour and size, from the options.  The hoodies cost £25.00 and payment should be made via ParentPay by Monday 6th June 2016.  The company does recommend ordering a size larger than usual in order to maximize the hoodie’s lifespan. We aim to give these out at the leavers’ assembly.
