GLITZ and glamour abounded as year 11 students prepared to wave goodbye to their school years with a Hollywood-themed prom.
Girls from The Kings of Wessex Academy in Station Road, Cheddar dressed in a stunning array of colourful gowns and dresses, partnered by some dapper gents sporting smart shirts and suits for their prom at the Webbington Hotel in Loxton.
The pupils’ transport was just as stylish – many turned up in everything from limousines to Rolls Royces and even a 1938 Ford Model 8 vintage car.
Among the more unusual cars was a Scooby Doo Mystery Machine and a Somerset tractor – complete with suited chauffeurs.
The red carpet was rolled out at the hotel before youngsters made their way to star-covered tables decorated with film reels and directors’ cut-boards.
