One hundred and fifty of our Year 11 students are invited to attend as an award for good behaviour, completion of work, excellent punctuality and attendance of above 90%.
Invitations are issued after the Easter holiday.
Much of the funding for the Prom is raised by the students, who organise sponsored walks, raffles, bag packs, car washes and other events. Those who do not raise funds are asked to make a voluntary contribution towards the cost.
What happens at the Prom
Every year, our students look forward to the Prom with great excitement. All the students look extremely smart, and there is always a long queue for the photographer. Prizes are awarded to the best dressed male, the best dressed female and the best dressed couple, winners being chosen by staff and pupils who attend the Prom. A further prize is also given to the person wearing the most original dress.
The Prom King and Prom Queen, who are given a crown and a sash respectively, are selected because of their contribution to Andrew Marvell College.
