Year 11 Class of 2020,

It is with great sadness, after liaising with Hardwick Hall, we need to inform you that Prom will not go ahead as scheduled on Thursday 8th October.

As you are no doubt aware, current Government guidelines still restrict many pre-arranged events. Hardwick Hall have informed us that Government guidelines stipulate the venue must limit large gatherings, such as weddings etc., to a maximum of 30 people.

Hardwick Hall cannot envisage when these restrictions will be lifted, especially for an enclosed event with 270+ people in attendance. This makes our hopes of an Autumn Prom highly improbable.

This decision has, regrettably, been taken out of our hands. We would like to wish you all well in your next steps and do long for the day when we can mark and celebrate your rite of passage collectively.

Best Wishes
Mr Hall
