With family and friends watching on, the prom goers, in tuxedos and glamorous dresses, arrived at the Elme Hall Hotel in a variety of modes of transport.

There was an assortment of sports cars on display, alongside classic cars, lorries, a fire engine and a tank.

One group of girls took things a step further, rocking up on a jet-ski.

The year 11 Thomas Clarkson Academy prom has become one of the highlights of the school calendar, providing students with a chance to, for one night, forget about exam results, college courses and future careers.
