Once again our Crystal Ball - the 12th in the series - proved the perfect way for our current Fifth Year to wind down at the end of an exacting term preparing for the summer's GCSE exams.
Our Sixth Form senior prefects, student paparazzi, Head of Fifth Year Mrs Sue Smith, Fifth Form tutors and a number of other staff all helped make the evening one to remember.
Blessed with a bright, clear Spring evening, our guests were able to mingle on the Bablake terrace and greet their peers before moving inside for an evening of great company, good food and excellent music in the Main Hall.
Photographs from the evening will be posted online over the Easter break, and we thank Charlotte Allitt, Mollie O'Sullivan and Claudia Youakim for capturing memories to be treasured by revellers, friends and family for years to come.
The Crystal Ball was instigated in 2006 by Bablake Upper Sixth formers Lauren Bates and Haydn Johnson, under the watchful brief of school captain Alex Kantor. The money raised at the event is split evenly between a charity of the students' choice and their own Leavers' Ball held at the end of the academic year.
