The Upper 5 (Year 11) year group from the Maynard School in Exeter were treated to the most glamorous Prom at the illustrious Powderham Castle on Monday 27 June 2016. It was a grand celebration of the end of the academic year and a befitting reward following their recent gruelling GCSE examination period.

Owned by the Earl of Devon, the Castle dates back to 1390 and its stunning views over the River Exe provided the perfect backdrop on this wonderful occasion for these students.

“It was fabulous!” said outgoing Headmistress, Bee Hughes. “The sun came out and we all had a brilliant time. Moments such as these, as I enter a new phase of my life, are enduring and I hope they will also last forever in the memories of all the girls. They deserve a good celebration and they certainly got one!”
