THE local community turned out in force to watch the arrival of Norton College Year 11 pupils.

Becky Blackburn, senior pastoral leader and prom organiser, said: “This was the highest turn-out we have ever seen at a prom.

“We look forward to seeing them on results day in August and then back to sixth form at Norton in September.”

Meanwhile, the Year 13 leavers enjoyed a low-key event at Kennedy’s Bar in York where a coach was put on to and from the venue. This was enjoyed by around half the year group, and a number of staff.
