Grange School Prom

Pupils from Shrewsbury’s Grange Secondary School turned on the glitz and glamour for their Hollywood Red Carpet themed prom night.

The Year 11 pupils, who will be leaving The Grange at the end of the summer term, arrived in various modes of transport for the event which is held each year in the school hall.

Hundreds of family and friends cheered as the youngsters arrived in anything from a horse-drawn carriage to the famous Only Fools and Horses three wheeler.

Head teacher Rob Hatch said the popular annual event was much enjoyed by all and was held in perfect weather conditions.

“The event has a wonderful community feel about it because it is probably the only prom in the area to be held on school premises,” said Mr Hatch.

“The hall and school restaurant were decorated brilliantly in keeping with the Red Carpet theme.

“This is all thanks to the tremendous efforts of the staff and PTA who each year help to make prom night a very special event for our Year 11 leavers.

“The pupils looked fantastic – the boys in their suits and ties and the girls in their amazing ball gowns.

“They really had gone to a lot of effort and the various modes of transport never fail to raise a smile.”
