The reality of leaving school behind is sinking in for students at two Spalding schools after a night of style and sparkle.

About 90 students from The Garth and Priory Schools enjoyed a Prom Night which, for many, marked a new stage of their lives.

Youngsters swapped school uniform for prom dresses and dinner suits, arriving at the Priory School in limousines, luxury and sports cars, motor bikes and even a pedal bike tied to a 4x4 vehicle.

Once there, staff created an end-of-term party atmosphere with disco and food to celebrate students’ achievements over the past five years.

Teaching assistant Julie Leach, the event’s main organiser, said: “The Priory School held another successful leavers’ prom at which pupils arrived in style and dressed for the occasion.

“It was an absolutely brilliant night, all the students enjoyed the party atmosphere and I’d like to thank all the staff who helped with the catering, the photographer who took pictures at the school and Fenland Enterprise for the disco and entertainment on the night.”

Daran Bland, headteacher of both schools, said: “This was our fifth prom for children across the Priory and Garth Schools and all the pupils who attended really enjoyed it.

“A special mention should go to Julie who worked hard to ensure the hall was decorated and that everything was in place for the night.”
