Leavers’ Ball 2017 On Friday 28th April 2017, Penrice Academy’s Year 11 Class of 2017 headed to Atlantic Hotel in Newquay to celebrate their time at school. Over 200 students came together in stunning dresses and suave suits and were l2met by sunshine and a gorgeous ocean backdrop as they arrived on the red carpet, flanked by beaming parents and teachers who have supported them for the past 5 years. This year also saw one of the school’s most impressive arrivals yet – a 4 inch Burrell Steam Traction Engine. Arrivals were followed by a three course meal, speeches from Head Boy and Head Girl Natalie and Gabe and Penrice’s traditional Ballroom Dancing, led by famous teaching duo ‘Team Thomas’. Natalie said: “This has been a truly fantastic night – there is no better way to mark the end of our time together at Penrice. Everyone looks so beautiful. A big thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make tonight what it is.” See more photos from the night in our gallery and on our Facebook page. Thank you to Partini for helping us with some fab balloons!
