Year 11 students from the King’s Lynn Academy made their mark by arriving in style at their much-anticipated prom night.
Wearing their finest suits and dresses, the boys and girls of the Academy made sure it was a night to remember as they said their goodbyes.
Parents, family and friends watched on in excitement with cameras, phones and tablets at the ready as youngsters arrived in a wide-array of vehicles.
A tractor and trailer, scooters in convoy, vintage Aston Martin, VW Camper Vans, a sidecar and an array of top marque cars delivered youngsters for the their final journey to the Academy.
Red was the colour of the night, with several girls in beautiful scarlet gowns.
Rebecca Schrooder, PA to the principal at King’s Lynn Academy, said: “It was lovely to see not only friends and family of the Year 11s in the crowd but former students (and staff), as well as current students from the lower years – it won’t be long before it is their turn.
“All in all, another successful evening was enjoyed by all and it was a fitting farewell to a fantastic year group.”
Students enjoyed a welcome drink after walking the red carpet, before going through to a delicious dinner served by staff, produced by catering manager Lorna Hutchison and her team.
Academy principal Craig Morrison kicked off the speeches and the awards, voted by staff and students, were presented.
The disco was enjoyed by all, and the boys, especially, enjoyed the Academy casino with roulette and craps tables, spending the $100 Morrison Moola they had been presented with on arrival.
The official photographer was busy all night and the photo booth also gave everyone some fun and memorable shots to go home with.
The end-of-year prom is a significant event in King’s Lynn Academy calendar which commemorates the journey the students have taken at the school and celebrates all of their hard work and commitment.
It is a chance to say goodbye to staff and to friends that may be heading off in different directions.
