The Student Head team who have worked so hard in organising the event, include, from left to right: Shannon, head boy, Betty , deputy head, Neesha  deputy head and Salma, head girl. 


The entire event has been organised by the Head Student Team who canvassed opinion from the whole of year 13 as to what they wanted for the evening, and then planned the finer details. “The biggest challenge has been juggling organising the Leavers’ Ball with our exams, but luckily it is all sorted before the exams start and now we can just look forward to it, “ said Head girl Betty.


Director of sixth form Ms Orchin said that the event would celebrate everything that year 13 has achieved during their time at Bolinbroke. “We are especially looking forward to the awards ceremony, the leavers’ video and to welcoming staff, both past and present to the event,” she said. “A huge thank you to the head students for their amazing hard work in organising this event – it promises to be an amazing evening.”


The venue for the event is the Star and Garter, Lower Richmond Road, Putney, SW15 1JN and tickets are subsidised at £45. The deadline for payment via Wisepay is May 24th.
