Upper Sixth Form pupils at Giggleswick School celebrated the end of an era as they joined friends, family and staff for a glittering Leavers’ Ball.

The black tie evening was a glamorous occasion with everyone looking their most stylish and sharing happy memories of their time at school.

More than 150 guests enjoyed a three-course dinner with entertainment provided by magician Paul Roberts, and dancing to ‘The Black Suits’.

Mr Bellis, who gave the toast to the leavers, urged the new ‘Old Giggleswickians’ to continue to grow, accept challenges in life, and make a difference to the lives of others.

He also took the opportunity to remember the young men of 1918 who did not come home as leavers.

Speeches were also given by the Heads of School, who celebrated their successes as a year group and also reflected on the lifelong lessons that will stay with them as they move on.

The school has wished all the leavers best of luck for the future and looks forward to welcoming them back to Giggleswick events and reunions soon.
