YEAR 8 leavers at a Uttoxeter middle school enjoyed a fantastic night of dressing up, dancing, non-alcoholic cocktails and nibbles at their leavers ‘prom’.
Mugs of sweets and champagne bottle party poppers adorned the tables at Oldfields Hall Middle School as the Year 8, soon-to-be-Year 9, leavers celebrated their transition from middle school to high school in September.
Youngsters of the Stone Road middle school dressed up in colourful party dresses and smart suits for a night of dancing and celebrating for their last night as a year group before they take the leap to high school.
A spokesman for the school said: “Year 8 Prom Committee and Miss Howard excelled themselves on the evening of Friday, July 11.
“What a night it was.”
Year 8 pupil Georgia, who attended the prom, said: “Thank you so much Miss Howard and everyone else that helped to organise the prom: whether it just be buying a cupcake at break or raising money for prom.
“All of your hard work has paid off.
“Miss Howard; everything was amazing from the cocktails to the seat coverings, the champagne bottles to the mugs of sweets.
