Dazzling dresses and sharp suits were on display as Sidmouth College pupils enjoy a fun night to celebrate the end of exams.

Sidmouth College students did not let the bad weather damped their spirits as they turned out in force to celebrate the end of exams.

Staff and pupils were armed with umbrellas to keep the rain off as they made their way to Woodbury Park for the year 11 prom.

Youngsters pulled out the stops in the style stakes wearing dazzling dresses and sharp suits to enjoy a fun night with friends.

Principal James Ingham-Hill said: “The evening was a huge success and was a fitting celebration for this outstanding cohort of students. The students made such an effort and looked incredible in their attire.

“After the stresses of their examinations this provided the perfect opportunity for the students to let their hair down and relax. It was great that the celebrations were also enjoyed by a large number of staff and some very proud parents.”

Once inside, the students settled down to enjoy a meal and an evening of dancing as they prepare for life after GCSEs.

Ben Williams, leader of engagement and performance, said: “It was special to see what mature young people they had grown into. It is always sad to see year 11 finish but I am pleased that so many are coming back for Sixth Form. It has been a challenging year but, now we are at the end, I feel it has definitely been worthwhile and everyone deserves a break.

“I wish all our Year 11 students the very best of luck with the next exciting stage of their lives.”
