Over 100 students from University Academy Holbeach enjoyed a prom night at the school to celebrate the end of their exams.

Students arrived in a range of vehicles, including vintage and modern cars, a homemade motorised car and even a boat.

The school hall was transformed to look like a “magical palace” and the students donned their most glamorous outfits for the event.

A buffet was provided at the prom, along with a disco and some karaoke.

Lesley Smillie, assistant principal at the school, said: “The students all looked absolutely amazing.

“The students put in such a huge effort – especially the girls who have been planning for months and months – and everyone looked absolutely amazing.

“They only left us a few weeks ago but they have already transformed into grown-ups in that short space of time, which is amazing to see.

“They arrived into the hall to applause from the staff and it really was their night and loads of spectators came down to watch them arrive.”
