Gorgeous gowns and sharp suits were out in force for the annual Neale Wade leavers prom.
Students in year 11 turned out in their finery arriving in cars including a mustang and limousines.
The leavers from the March college turned out in force watched by proud family members for the event which was held at Elme Hall Hotel in Wisbech.
The prom marks the big event of the year after months of hard work for their GCSEs.
Now it is a case of waiting for their exam results, which are expected in August.
Proms can be traced back to simple banquets that 19th century American universities held for graduating classes.
A growing teenage culture pushed for them at a younger age and by the 1950s, a thriving postwar economy saw more high schools hold them in venues other than in the school hall.
The first Neale Wade prom was in 1989.
