Students step out in style for prom

STUDENTS from Worthing High School celebrated achievements during their time at the school at the end-of-year prom.

The event, for the school’s year-11 students, was held at the Long Furlong Barn, at Clapham, near Worthing, on Friday evening. And while there is still time for the 150 students to let down their hair after months of studying for exams, the prom was a chance for them to dress to impress and spend a last time together, celebrating their educational achievements as a year group. With dinner jackets for the men and posh frocks for ladies that saw the venue awash with colour, the evening was a formal affair in some respects, but still with plenty of fun.

Head teacher Carolyn Dickinson said: “Carriages arrived from 7pm and family and friends watched the students arrive in a wide variety of transport including scooters, a Rolls Royce, double-decker bus, camper vans and limousines. Students from the school entertained everyone with live music while everyone arrived and continued to play as the students went through for drinks. The prom night is a lovely way for us to celebrate the achievement of our Year 11 pupils as a school, just before they leave secondary education. As staff watched the students arrive at the venue we were reminded of how much progress they have all made since joining us four years ago. It was a very proud night for the school and one that we and the students will always remember.”
