Prom surprise!

Published by Sibford School on Friday 27th of June 2014

Attendees at Sibford School's year 11 Prom got a big surprise when reality TV star Ollie Locke popped by to say 'hi'.

The Made in Chelsea star was a pupil at the school from 2003 2005, and agreed to come along after receiving an invite from pupil Alice Abrey, a member of the Prom organising committee.

'I emailed his agent to see if would like to come along but heard nothing,' said Alice. 'Then on Wednesday evening I got a call on my mobile and it was from Ollie himself saying he'd love to join us. I couldn't believe it. I told my fellow organisers Becky and Jade but we kept it a secret from everyone else so it was a big surprise on the night.'

Ollie chatted with pupils and teachers and spoke about his time at the school and how he had enjoyed filming Made in Chelsea. He was also reunited with his GCSE art project 'Depiction of Water' which he had never collected from the school.

'We found his folder in the art room and thought it would be good to give it back to him,' said Alice. 'Quite what he thought about it I'm not sure but this time he did at least take it away with him!'
