Sixth Form Ball

Vandyke Sixth Form students enjoyed their Summer Ball on Saturday 4th July, despite their original venue being closed without warning. 

Year 13 leavers were among many who had booked events at Mentmore Golf Club.  They were forced to find a new venue when it unexpectedly ceased trading in June.

Sixth Form staff were able to book the conservatory at Luton Hoo, due to a cancellation.

Mr Downey, director of Sixth Form said “There was understandably anxiety when we heard about Mentmore closing and huge relief when we were able to secure a new venue at such short notice.  However it all turned out for the good, as we ended up having a wonderful evening in a location that would otherwise have been beyond our budget.  I am proud to say that students were impeccably behaved as ever, earning compliments from Conservatory staff. It really was a night to remember!”
