The event, described as a ‘great evening’ was organised by staff as a ‘well done’ and ‘thank you’ for their students and meant the teenagers could swap their school uniform for their Prom finery to celebrate the completion of their GCSE exams.
Many of them used their individual reward points, accrued over the course of the academic year, to fund ticket costs.
There was much speculation amongst students on the night as to the identity of the anonymous photobombing ‘gorilla’ who turned up to enjoy the celebrations and cheer. Much like the Stig, organisers remain tight lipped over the gorilla’s true identity, which is to be kept a closely guarded secret for when it makes its next appearance.
As none of Brixham College’s four heads of house were seen or pictured together during the evening’s proceedings it is alleged that one of them could have donned the suit and mask, creating a hot topic of conversation, amusement and debate amongst guests.
“Our students really look forward to their end of year Prom and it’s a well-deserved reward for everyone who has worked so hard over the whole year,” says Mark Eager, principal, Brixham College. “It’s a great way to sign off the ‘end an era’, have fun and celebrate how far they’ve come,” he adds.Follow
