Year 6 children at a Wisbech school organised their own leaving prom to say their farewells to staff and friends moving to different schools.

Children at the Orchards Primary School arrived at their party in smart cars, wearing smart gowns and suits.

They were treated to a disco and a buffet for the evening, which was also attended by teachers and some parents.

Orchards' Year 1 teacher Jane Russell helped the 54 Year pupils at the school to organise and run the party.

The children will be moving to school across Fenland, including the Queen's School, Marshland High School and Neale-Wade Community College.
