They came, they saw and, my word, how they conquered.The sun kept his hat on while teens from year eleven at Uckfield Community Technology College arrived at the Effingham Park Copthorne Hotel for their Prom.
There were long and short ballgowns with shoestring straps, glitter, elegant necklines and embroidery while the boys almost outdid the girls with bright bow ties and sleek suits.
Everyone crowded at the hotel entrance to view amazing forms of transport including a stretch Hummer, stretch limos, authentic American Jeep, steam engine and a clutch of classic cars. Mobile phones were at the ready as students recorded the evening for posterity.
They were all delighted to welcome their former head of year, Mr Greaves plus their heads of year past and present. There was an easy rapport between students and staff.
College spokeswoman Clare Fletcher said: “They looked stunning and were amazing; a real credit to the year 11 team and Uckfield Community Technology College.” The night went without a hitch leaving everyone with a lifetime’s fond memories.
