Saddleworth School students glam up for prom

By Louise Beech

SADDLEWORTH School leavers were dressed to the nines in flowing dresses and smart suits for their prom.

The Year 11 students enjoyed the night at the Saddleworth Hotel on June 26, celebrating the end of their GCSE exams.

“Pupils made an amazing entrance in a variety of vehicles including two tractors,” said teacher and organiser Heather Byron.

“We were overwhelmed by the number of parents who turned up to see their children arrive in style.”

Pupils were treated to a silver service buffet, sweet Table, magician, photo booth and an ice-cream van.

These extras were made possible courtesy of the Year 11 prom fundraising team and generous sponsors FOSS, Saddleworth Round Table, Alithya, ePower trucks, Real Systems Control, Jet Metal Components, Grotton One Hair and Beauty and Mr M Givvons.

Mrs Byron added: “The year group did us proud. Not only did they look amazing, they were impeccably behaved as well.

“The dance floor was full from the start of the evening until the last pupils left.”

McKenzie Fletcher and Ben Lamb were crowned Prom King and Queen while Mia Bunn was Miss Congeniality.
