Sheringham High School sent its Year 11 students off in style last night, with teenagers rolling up their end-of-year prom in vehicles ranging from sports cars and limousines, to a tractor and an army Jeep.

Held in the school hall, the red carpet-style event was organised by a twelve-strong group of students, who laid on a disco and a buffet cooked up by canteen staff.

The hall was decked out with balloons, with students making their entrance through a tunnel of lights.

Among the more unusual modes of transport were a John Deere tractor, and a mobility scooter ridden by 16-year-old pals Harry Wilding and Jonny Duffield.

Three couples arrived in a 1986 open-backed Bedford lorry, while Louis Coleman and Amy Annear drove up in a balloon-adorned golf buggy driven by friend Mike Clutson.

Sixteen-year-old Sophie Wilkinson, who was a member of the organising team, said the prom was a celebration of five years of high school and a chance to unwind after weeks of exams.

'This is our school, so we wanted to have the prom here as it wouldn't mean as much somewhere else,' she added.

Sheringham High School head teacher Tim Roderick praised the students for their hard work in organising the event, which, in spite of heavy rain, went ahead without a hitch.

'They did absolutely everything themselves,' he said. 'It was organised with almost military precision and it was great to see so many smiling faces.'
