SUPERHEROES, fire engines, tractors, trucks, sports cars, and even a tv comedy three-wheeler descended on Holyrood Academy last week for prom.

Pupils from the Chard school celebrated the end of their GCSEs, and five years at Holyrood, in style.

There were fantastic frocks, exceptional automobiles, and suave suits.

The annual Celebration Day was held last Thursday (June 27) and was blessed with glorious sunshine.

Pauline Lamond is head of Year 11 at the Chard secondary school.

She said “We wish every student success in their future.

“Many are staying on at Holyrood and we will be seeing them again in September in our Sixth Form.

“I am proud of their hard work and determination during their exams and throughout since Year 7 and I look forward to seeing them all again on Results Day on August 22.”

Family and friends turned out to watch the colourful ensemble assemble.

An emotional ceremony was held through the afternoon at Holyrood’s sports hall where students received their records of achievement and individual farewells from tutors.

Matthew Collins is Holyrood Academy’s headteacher.

He said: “It is days like these that remind us all how hard our students work to achieve their very best.

“I can remember when these students joined the Academy and can confidently say that they truly deserve the very best success in their GCSEs.

“The staff and I are all very proud of the way Year 11 approached their exams and are sure they will have much to celebrate when the results arrive in August.”
