In photos: Prom night fun for 170 King Alfred School students

Over 170 pupils from Highbridge's King Alfred School attended an end-of-term prom near Burnham-On-Sea on Friday evening (May 22nd).

Stretch limousines were out in force as the Year 11 students travelled in style to Rookery Manor, where the formal Prom Night dance was held for 173 youngsters.

Nigel Storey, the Assistant Head of the school's Year 11s, told "Excitement has been building for this night for several weeks."

"It's an important milestone for the pupils as they come to the end of eleven years of schooling."

Scores of limos were seen around the streets of Burnham, ferrying the youngsters to their special evening - and there were several unusual vehicles in use too, including Scooby Doo's Mystery Machine, pictured on the right!

One youngster even came onboard the Light of Elizabeth hovercraft, in return for a generous donation to rescue charity BARB.
