Dear Parents


For those coming to The Great Gatsby Ball next Saturday, we are looking forward to a great evening! Here is some final info for you in advance of the night…


There will something very big and exciting in the marquee - this amazing item was at the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games. It is on loan to us for the evening by Tim Neale, the brother of Phyllis Avery MBE, Chair of the PTA Main Board. Tim will be at the event and can answer any of your questions. The icing on our Great Gatsby cake!


The auction and raffle prizes are better than ever. Bring credit cards, cheque books or cash with you as prizes need to be paid for on the night.


We are delighted to welcome Mr Blakeley, Deputy Head of Senior Boys, as our host for the evening. Mr Blakeley has been with Claires Court Senior Boys for eleven years, we know he’ll be a fab MC.


We hope that you all have an amazing time. As they say 'There ain't no party like a Gatsby party!'
