LIMOS and lorries, Land Rovers and Lancias, Buses and Bikes, the sporty to the spectacular….the 2013 Neale Wade prom had it all.
They even had a double decker bus with the legend – Lets Party at the Prom- draped around it. Presumably in case any of the guests temporarily forgot they were out to have a good time!
OK the principal Jason Wing was out there somewhere (cool dude dark glasses hardly the most riveting of ‘disguises’) but in accordance with prom tradition style is definable in the main by the arrival smile.
At Elme Hall Hotel in Wisbech last night the smile stretched way beyond the length of the glitziest limo…..where Wisbech students had partied seven days earlier the benchmark was set for the March contingent.
For some it was a case of practicalities beckoning as a Fenland Association of Community Transport mini bus ferrying guests was quickly and easily forgiven.

And quite how far one young man had come by cycle was never admitted save to note he seemed remarkably unfazed had it have been the full 12 miles from March!
As with all proms, the parents, onlookers and families were to remain firmly on the outside looking in.
- 1 Man found dead in March
- 2 Driver leaves girl 'very shaken' after ploughing into car
- 3 'Loving, caring family man' dies in hospital weeks after A141 crash
- 4 7 of the best pumpkin picking locations in Cambridgeshire
- 5 Over 100 modern slavery victims rescued in Cambridgeshire
- 6 Janice launches Slimming World group after losing over two stone
- 7 Dramatic pictures catch harvester on fire in 4am blaze
- 8 Work to improve A47 between March and Peterborough begins
- 9 Man jailed for historic sexual abuse 'convinced child victims it was normal behaviour'
- 10 Parents 'can never forgive' actions for Maddie's murder
This was a ritualistic, coming of age end of school beginning of dreams moment for which adult exclusion, as far as was realistically possible, had to be maintained.
Neale Wade, as an academic pillar of the community, is in recovery as well as party mood.
The seeds have been set well and truly for the former – and on the evidence of last night the latter looks pretty good too.
Now all fingers are crossed that exam results due soon reflect the vitality, enthusiasm and rigour applied to the end of term prom.
Given the encouraging noises emanating from the school in recent months and its sustained good progress, the party may indeed have only just begun.
