Proms are a big part of life for school pupils these days. And a group of students and teachers from Berwick Academy enjoyed the unique setting of Ellingham Hall during their special event for leavers.
With a red-carpet welcome and mocktails for the group of 60 who made the short trip south, it really was a special occasion.
While you would expect students to enjoy the chance to “bust some moves” and let their hair down, no one quite expected that our resident peacock would be such a huge hit.
Head of Year Jess Angus wrote to us after a fantastic evening and said: “I do owe an apology to the resident peacock… I didn’t realise that a bird would fascinate the students as much as he did.”
The chapel was dressed in gold and black for the Prom and a Northumbrian hog roast fed the peckish pupils.
We had lots of fun welcoming the students. It was good to see them making the most of the fun photo booth, while others took the opportunity to chill in our reception rooms and out in the grounds.
Jess added: “Our Prom was amazing, and I honestly cannot thank your staff enough for the trust and professionalism you had with the students and myself.
“The students had the ‘run of the place’ and they really liked the ability to be able to go and sit somewhere quiet, wander around outside, chill on the roof terrace or have a good dance on the dance floor. I’ve always highly rated Ellingham Hall as a venue and it has exceeded any of the high expectations.”
