The heavens opened as students arrived for their Prom at Tadcaster Grammar School but the torrential downpour didn’t dampen their spirits.
Armed with umbrellas or just braving the elements, Year 11 students arrived in style, to celebrate the end of five years of hard work and ultimately their GCSE examinations.
Open-top sports cars, a Lamborghini, a Maserati, cars with personalised number plates, a single decker bus, vintage cars, a camper van, an ice cream van and even a couple of tractors were all the chosen to transport students to their special celebration evening.
Eventually the sun came out and a rainbow appeared as students gathered for a group photograph with the Headteacher Martyn Sibley.
Once inside, Toulston Hall was bedecked with blue and white flower arrangements, balloons and a specially created Prom cake. Students enjoyed the camaraderie and danced the night away to a disco in a specially erected marquee attached to the Hall.
The Prom was definitely the icing on the cake to a week that had seen students having fun at Alton Towers and dressing up for the Wide Games and was just the ticket for them to let their hair down and celebrate.
