Prom hire initiative seeks donations of prom dresses and suits

The Year 11 Prom is an important milestone for our students as it is a memorable event to celebrate their achievements before they go to Sixth Form, College or into employment.

At Giles Academy, we work extremely hard to make the Proms as affordable as possible so everyone has the opportunity to attend. One of the costs involved with going to a Prom is obviously looking your best and that often requires buying a suit or dress for the first time.

Our Year 11 Lead, Mr Scott Relton has set up the ‘Prom Shop’ at Giles Academy where students can borrow the clothing for the Prom for no cost and they can then be used for students for the following years as well. The aim is to have a variety of suits, prom dresses and shoes available for students plus items such as bow ties and prom accessories.

Miss Katie Belcher, Head of School said “Thank you to all the staff who have already made donations, if parents do have donations to offer please send them into our main reception as this will definitely help to support many of our students.”

Although the Proms will not be taking place until the end of the summer term, we want our students to have the time to prepare and the peace of mind that they have their suit or dress before they take their exams in the summer.

If you need to arrange collection, you can email Mr Scott Relton, Year 11 Lead on
