Y13 Ball 

The end of the year for students is fast approaching and, as always, we would like to celebrate with them in order to commemorate the end of their A-level studies and time at Balcarras. As is traditional, a Year 13 Prom will be held on Monday July 3rd 2023 at Pittville Pump Room from 7:30pm to 11pm (although we recommend to arrive at 7pm). This is an event organised by the Year 13 Prom Committee and comprises of a welcome drink, two-course meal, coffee, petit fours along with entertainment and a DJ. There will also be the opportunity for pupils to have photographs taken throughout the evening (which will be made available to them at a later date) and to take selfies on a magic mirror booth, which prints photographs that can be taken away on the night. The cost of a ticket for the ball is £35. Anyone who is struggling to cover the cost of a ticket for financial reasons should come to speak to the sixth form team as soon as possible. If you would like your son/daughter to attend the Prom, payment must be made via the online payment system ScoPay, which can be accessed via the school website by Friday 5th May 2023.

Leavers Hoodies 

The Year 13 Prom Committee has organised for a leavers’ hoodie to be made for those who would like a memento of their time at Balcarras. It will feature the names of all members of the Class of 2023 on the back. The cost of the hoodie is £25. Any profits made from the sale will contribute towards the Year 13 Prom. Colours and size information can be found on the company website. If you would like to know what the hoodies will look like, a copy of the design will be displayed in the common room on the Prom Notice Board for you to have a look at. There will also be sample sizes available to try on in Year 13 study. The deadline for payment is Friday 31st March. They should be available to collect on or before Year 13’s final day at school. Please purchase the hoodies through ScoPay.
