An array of beautiful dresses and stylish, extravagant suits were on display as parents watched the procession of cars drop off excited students, in anticipation of their final congregation as one whole year group. Two students, Charlie and Cameron, were even transported to the prom by a hearse.

The prom, originally planned for earlier in June to celebrate the end of students' time at Smithdon, was finally allowed to go ahead in July. 

Students danced to cult Smithdon classics such as ‘’Sweet Caroline’’ and ‘’Country Road’’ before finishing the evening with the weather appropriate ‘’Summer of 69’’.
