Among the students donning their best threads to celebrate the end of their school lives were more than 200 pupils at Poynton High School.

The glitzy ceremony at Hilton Hotel at Manchester Airport was the last hurrah for many of the students who will all be leaving their classmates for the final time and heading off in their different directions.

David Waugh, headteacher, said: “It was wonderful to be able to celebrate so many of our students’ graduation at our recent Prom Events.

"They are such exciting and inspirational events with our students being fabulously dressed, impeccably behaved and having a real celebration of their time at school and the friendships they have forged.

"To have been able to support the students as they have matured into exceptional young adults is awe inspiring. Congratulations to the Class of 2016.”

Among the party goers were Beth Henshaw and Callum Beaver, who were named prom king and prom queen at the end of year event.
