Teenagers celebrated their last day of school with a glamorous prom.

The 180 pupils in Year 11 at Thurstable School, Tiptree, went to All Manor of Events in Ipswich.

In what has now become a tradition, they arrived at school using unusual modes of transport including mobility scooters, an open top bus, stretch Hummers, a fire engine, motorbikes and golf buggies, before leaving for the venue.

Thurstable pupil Joe Oyelade, who was named last year’s Magic Circle Young Magician of the Year, performed tricks and there was also live music.
