A school spokesman said: “The guests were served refreshments and there was as ever, lots of singing and dancing to Christmas tunes. As always, this was regarded as a highlight of the Sixth Form’s social calendar. Students from the Sixth Form committee have been working hard over the last few months planning the evening for our guests.
