A HORSE-DRAWN carriage mixed with fire engines, motorbikes and a tractor and trailer as The Regis School hosted its latest prom.

The event saw 150 Year 11 students dressed to impress as they walked the red carpet as they arrived at the Bognor Regis school.

Head of house Nicky Wiles said: “A large number of our community were there to welcome the students as they arrived and watched as they walked the red carpet.

“Students had official photographs taken looking glamorous on the red carpet, while those who had already arrived sipped their welcome drinks and enjoyed watching their fellow students take the grand walk in.”

The prom award winners were divided in two because it was hard to narrow them down further.

Staff voted for the prom king, Dudley Driscol, and prom queen, Lucy Stubbings. Students voted for the best dressed male, Tony Lehanne, and best dressed female, Zoe Bradley.

The other awards given on the evening were: Most memorable student: Saskia Watson; Most likely to be a politican: Hollie Gibbens; Most likely to be famous: Amelia Green; Most likely to be a millionaire: Reece Yorke; Most likely to be a footballer’s wife: Keighley Butler.

Once inside, the students enjoyed a buffet and disco, as well as being able to leave messages for friends and staff in a video diary room.

They could also have photographs taken in a booth where a dressing-up box provided some entertaining photograph opportunities.

“It was a truly wonderful event which was enjoyed by both staff and students.
