Sixth form students from Meadowgate Academy, Wisbech, enjoyed their end of year prom.
They set out in a vintage Routemaster London bus for a trip to the Crown Lodge hotel in Outwell where they were treated to a buffet reception.
Emma Bird, head of sixth form, said: “After a two-year lapse because of Covid, the academy was thrilled to be able to send the leaving students off in style with the prom. “
Staff and families gathered at the academy to wave them off.
Emma said: “This is a very proud moment as we have seen these students grow into amazing young people.
“Some of the students have been at the school for 13 years, so it was a bittersweet moment for them as they celebrated their graduation.”
A special leavers’ assembly was also held to celebrate all their achievements, which was attended by their parents and carers.
