They made it a night to re­mem­ber

Aldershot News & Mail - - COURT MOOR SCHOOL PROM -

MEN on stilts min­gled with ma­gi­cians and even a fireeater at the High­field Park Ho­tel in Heck­field last Thurs­day, en­sur­ing that the Court Moor School prom was a night to re­mem­ber.

Around 200 Year 11 stu­dents be­gan ar­riv­ing from 7pm in a med­ley of stretched lim­ou­sines, Hum­mers, a Mus­tang and some vin­tage buses.

They were met by a trio of pro­fes­sional jazz mu­si­cians who played for them on the balmy evening, be­fore a spe­cially re­quested din­ner of fish and chips. The Year 11 band per­formed some num­bers, and it was a Court Moor old boy who oc­cu­pied the DJ booth, play­ing a mix­ture of con­tem­po­rary hits that had the whole com­pany on its feet all night.

Julie An­drews, head of Year 11 pas­toral sup­port, said: “It was a re­ally fan­tas­tic evening. They had a won­der­ful time.

“It fin­ished at 11.30pm but we couldn’t get rid of them. “They didn’t want to go.” Ms An­drews said when the rev­ellers re­turned the next day for their leavers’ as­sem­bly, ‘they were still buzzing’.

The night was a farewell to the GCSE co­hort, whom Ms An­drews and head of year Jackie Ali­son have looked af­ter for the past three years.
