On Thursday 30th June, Bloxwich Academy marked the end of the examination series and Key Stage 4 milestone, with our infamous Year 11 prom. There has never been a year where this has been more deserved than for this year group. Following the pandemic, they have faced considerable challenges to their GCSE studies with disrupted term time, covid testing, social-distancing, home learning and not forgetting the introduction of ‘Teams’ lessons.
We could not be prouder of this year group and how they have stood up to these challenges head on, with sheer determination not to let it impact on their results. The evening was celebrated at Calderfields Golf Country Club in Walsall, and despite the annual rain on arrival, the party was in full swing with our disco, magician, circus acts and not forgetting the “Dance-Off” between teachers and pupils.
The evening was a great way to celebrate their hard work over the past 2 years and we hope that when we see them all again in August, they will have made themselves proud and smashed those results.
Take a look at some of the moments captured on the evening.
