Jeanette Beevers, who organised the event with head of year Elaine Douris, said: “The weather was really bad but it didn’t put them off. Most of the students arrived by cars and a teacher was on hand with an umbrella to greet them.”

The group of 150 students enjoyed a two-course meal and cupcakes which had been made specially for the prom.

There was a disco and presentation for the prom king and queen, Joe Fenief and Rebecca Ingle, best dressed and people who had achieved 100 per cent attendance.

Miss Beevers, pastoral assistant for Year 11, said: They all looked fantastic and really did the school proud.

“They were all well behaved and had a fantastic night. They looked absolutely amazing.

“Even the rain didn’t dampen the spirits because they were looking forward to it.

“The students felt like royalty all night and we had a photographer on hand taking their pictures throughout.

“This is the last time they will see each other before moving on to do their own thing. So it was nice to have this get together before they left.
