A pink limo, a VW campervan, lorries and Ferraris were just a few of the modes of transport used by students arriving at their prom.

Year 11 pupils from the Kings Of Wessex Academy, in Cheddar, were glammed up for their prom at Rookery Manor on Wednesday.

The event marked the end of GCSE exams and the end of some of the students time at the academy.

Girls and boys dressed to impress in stunning prom gowns and smart suits.

It was a warm evening but the DJ mixed a variety of popular dance numbers so pupils could dance the night away.

Headteacher Gavin Ball said: “It was wonderful to see our students so smiley, relaxed and happy after all their hard work for their exams.

“I wish them a long and lovely summer break to pursue hobbies and time with loved ones and I look forward to welcoming many of them back in September.”
