Year 11 Prom - Update


The Rosedale Hewens Academy Trust is delighted to announce the details of the Year 11 Prom, taking place on the evening of Friday 15th July 2022. The event will celebrate the end of the GCSE examinations and will be a time to mark the end of Key Stage Four for our Year 11 cohort.

The prom will be held at:

Q Vardis,
Old Mill Lane,
UB8 2JH.

The event will start at 7:00pm and will conclude promptly at 12:00am. The theme for the prom is “A Night on the Red Carpet” so students should dress to impress in the colour(s) of their choice. Finger food will be served, including several different meat, fish and vegetarian options. Students will be given one free soft drink with their ticket; however, additional soft drinks may be purchased at students’ discretion. In addition to this, a photo booth, with props and a green screen, will also be available for students to take unlimited pictures. These will be placed on a USB and students can collect their pictures at a later date, free of charge. Students will also have the opportunity to showcase their talents, utilise a customised Snapchat Geofilter bespoke for this year’s prom, experience the trending 360 photo booth, be treated to a special guest attendance and win an award at the mini-awards ceremony! An abundance of teachers will be present in order to celebrate with and chaperone the students. Additional security is provided by the venue to ensure the safety of all in attendance. Inappropriate behaviour at the event will lead to students being dismissed from the venue and denied re-entry. Parents, guardians or carers will be contacted to collect their child immediately. Under these circumstances, a refund will not be issued.

All attendees are advised to take a lateral flow test the evening before and the morning of the Prom. Hand sanitiser will be available throughout the venue and students can wear face coverings at their own discretion. The venue will also be well-ventilated and regular hand-washing will be encouraged.

The total cost for students to attend the Year 11 Prom is £35.00 per person and full payment must be received before Friday 10th June 2022. This can be paid via your child’s iPayimpact account or via cash to the Principal’s PA, and a record of the payment should be kept, as proof of purchase. Should you wish to pay via cash, you can give your signed reply slip to your Form Tutor, or you can give this to the Principal's PA along with the cash. Upon paying the full amount, students can collect their ticket from the Principal’s PA. The ticket must be shown to security on the night, in order to gain entry into the venue. Without the ticket, students will be turned away; therefore, it is imperative that tickets are not lost. Students who attend the Prom in inappropriate attire may be turned away; the dress code is strictly formalwear.

In the event that government restrictions prevent the Prom from taking place, students will receive a refund for the amount paid.

If you consent to the terms and conditions outlined in this letter, and would like for your child to participate in the Prom, please complete and return the reply slip below, to your child’s form tutor, confirming your child’s attendance, no later than Friday 10th June 2022
