Year 11 Prom 2022

Medina College’s Year 11 Prom took place at Cowes Yacht Haven on the evening of 7 July. The evening began with the students arriving in style in the glorious sunshine. One group took full advantage of the location and arrived into the marina by rib! We also saw stretched limousines, sports cars, vintage and classic cars and even a monster truck!

The students looked stunning in their gowns and suits and it was a joy to see them looking so mature and enjoying themselves.

They enjoyed a two course meal together followed by a presentation of some light-hearted awards. It was then time to crown the students’ choice for Prom King and Prom Queen – Christopher Shore and Bella Illman.

Following the awards, the students enjoyed a disco and karaoke where every single one of them was up on the dancefloor. They also had fun having their photos taken by the magic mirror.

Executive Headteacher and Head of Medina College, Matthew Parr-Burman said “It was a fantastic event with Year 11 looking very much less like students and more like the young adults that they are becoming. They took full advantage of the celebratory event, but were impeccably behaved and I am very proud of them for representing Medina College in such a positive and exemplary way. We look forward to welcoming them back in August for their results.”

We would like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to Lifeline Alarm Systems LTD, WRS Systems, Beta Pak LTD and WightFibre for their generous cash donations, to Dave Wiltshire and his wife from Karaoke and Disco IOW and Laura Armstrong from Backdrops and Balloons. The evening would not have been possible without their generous support.

It was a fabulous event and the perfect way to mark the end of five amazing years with these wonderful young people.
