Smart suits and glitzy gowns were on show as Year 11s dressed to impress for this year’s Pool Academy prom.

School leavers were invited to the event which took place in St Ives recently.

Thanks to months of fundraising the young people had an array of treats lined up for them when they arrived at Tregenna Castle. There was also a photograph booth and a sweet cart.

Teacher Kirstie Conway-Baker, who helped the Year 11s organise this year’s prom, said: “The Prom was brilliant. The students all looked amazing and the weather was very kind to us.

“The room at the castle was decorated with sunflowers and there were lemon and grey chair bows.

“The students danced all night and there wasn't a time when the dance floor wasn't full.

“I was very proud of the effort the prom committee put in to planning and fundraising for the prom they wanted.

“It was a night we will never forget. We have to thank Emily Rose Events Hire who worked with the prom committee to make their ideas into reality.”
