Students from Cromer Academy arrived for the Leavers Prom in an array of unusual vehicles in jubilant moods refusing to let the bad weather dampen their spirits.

A 1961 VW camper van, fleet of mobility scooters and a Rolls Royce chauffeured by “the Stig” were among the modes of transport used by the students to arrive at their prom held at Pinewood Park in Bodham. Staff were on hand to escort the girls and boys to the venue under umbrellas to ensure their hairstyles and outfits were not dampened by the rain. Prizes were awarded to Sarah Nash for Best Dressed Girl and Ross Johnstone for Best Dressed Boy. The prize for Best Arrival went to Sam Wright, Milo Longstaff, Tom Neale and Harry Pigott by

turning up on mobility scooters. The unofficial award for Best Dancer went to Alistair Ford who entertained his peers with some unconventional moves.

The students had fundraised earlier in the year for the event by holding a successful prom fashion show in March in conjunction with Maisy May boutique in North Walsham and Lily B boutique in


Students were also able to exchange house points received during the year for good behaviour for a reduction in their ticket. The school said the evening was a fantastic event and a great way for the students to unwind after all their hard work leading up to their exams. Staff wished them every success in their GCSE results in August.

Students find their sanctuary with opening of new space

Cromer Academy has seen the opening of The Sanctuary prayer space, which has come about through input from philosophy leaders and Fresh Air helpers. Sanctuary means “a place

where people can seek refuge from their everyday concerns or worries” and this has been the idea behind the space, together with allowing students to explore prayer in creative ways.

The thinking behind the space is mainly from a Christian perspective but it is accessible to all faiths.


Students have been exploring the space during philosophy lessons. Pupils have

commented how peaceful the space is and is a place they can “chill out” in. During their time in the space students have been moving around the 10 interactive prayer stations ranging from Mirrors – looking at identity, Stillness Pod, Thank You board and Area for Reflection. Stations are interactive and have given students the opportunity to think deeply about their worries, concerns, questions and joys in life.
