Winterbourne Academy ends the year in style

WINTERBOURNE Academy pupils ended the academic year by taking part in fundraising, performing in the school’s own arts festival and, for year 11s, enjoying a leavers’ prom.

During the arts festival, Year 7 and 10 pupils joined with the Young Blood Theatre Group to put on drama performances, below.

The Jazz Band Orchestra, String Group, Bourne Acapella and choir showed off their talents too, while the cast from the school production We Will Rock You also gave a performance.

In the evening there was an art and photography exhibition showcasing the work of the Year 11 students, below.

The next day, pupils dug out their weirdest and wackiest trousers to wear for Wrong Trousers Day, raising a total of £937 for critically ill children and babies at Bristol Children’s Hospital.

The prom, below, was held at Tortworth Court, with Year 11s celebrating the end of GCSEs by dressing to impress and arriving in an array of vehicles from Porsches and Ferraris to limos and classic cars.

There were speeches and awards for the prom kind and queen. The prom king award went to Ethan Hunt, and the prom queen award to Abi Beaumont, for their hard work and positive attitude during their time at the school.
