Pupils at the Thomas Clarkson Academy in Wisbech ensured their Year 11 studies ended in style on Friday when they put on the glitz for their prom.

A flotilla of vehicles from limousines to veteran cars and even a horse and carriage worthy of a Disney princess, ferried the students to the event at Elme Hall in Wisbech as other students, family and friends gathered to watch the stylish arrivals.

Girls wore glamorous frocks with tiaras and high heels while the boys were stylish in suits and ties.

The evening included dancing in the hall which was lavishly decorated for the event.

The event also included the all important vote to choose a prom king and queen.

Organisers were delighted with the event’s success describing it as ‘absolutely brilliant’ and thanked Elme Hall Hotel for hosting the night, which marked the end of an era as many pupils will be moving on to further education in September.
