A school in Nottinghamshire says it is “bitterly disappointed” after the academy’s prom had to be shut down due to an incident. According to parents and the headteacher evidence of alcohol and recreational substances was discovered in the venue’s toilets, prompting an immediate end to the event.

The George Spencer Academy’s year 11 prom was held at The Nottingham Belfry hotel on July 1. It was reported by parents within a few hours the event was brought to a close due to the actions of some who attended on the night.

The academy headteacher has now released a statement to Nottinghamshire Live condemning the actions of a “tiny minority”. An investigation is now underway to find those responsible.

Helen Corbett, the principal at the George Spencer Academy, said: “Sadly, at the academy’s year 11 prom which took place on the evening of July 1st, staff at the venue reported finding evidence of alcohol and recreational substances in the male toilet. In line with venue policy, academy staff were requested to end the evening early; which they did.

“Understandably, students, parents and academy staff were bitterly disappointed at this incident. At present we have been unable to connect the contraband found with any individual, however, the conduct of a tiny minority of our young people is not representative of the immaculate behaviour of this year group.

“The actions of those involved are unacceptable, and we are sorry that our students did not have the Prom experience they expected and deserved. An internal investigation will now take place, and in the coming days, we will support and communicate directly with our student and families.”

The Nottingham Belfry was contacted for comment.
