BUSES and pink limos were among the transport used by Steyning students for their prom.

The 280 Year 11 students from Steyning Grammar Schol were admired by their teachers as they arrived at Effingham Park, a hotel near Gatwick.

Jeanette Masters, head of year, said: “With girls looking gorgeous and boys looking beautiful, this year’s prom promised to be a memorable occasion.

“We were incredibly lucky with the weather – it stayed fine throughout – and everyone had a good time, with our students conducting themselves perfectly.”

Students sipped fruit punch on the lawn and had their photos taken while they waited for the doors to the Millennium Suite to open.

The prom committee had chosen a burgundy and cream colour scheme, with balloons and confetti added the finishing touches to the room.

Following the meal, Year 11 reps Rebecca van Pelt and Kallum Salleem stepped up to the microphone to hand out prizes, including the prom king and queen awards to Nicole Allen and Reuben Selby.

The next day, the students were joined in school by family members for their leavers’ assembly, with slide shows and certificates awarded.

Steyning Millennium Trust certificates and prize money went to Molly Parker and Myer Short, and the Tony Russell award went to Megan Page.

Other prize winners were: Eden Shaw, RE; Olivia Gilpin, drama; Lewis Eldridge, engineering; Bethan McSorley, maths; Jenny Mason, graphics; Victoria Godley, art; Tom Ranger, history; Jordan Walser, ICT; Brandon Scourfield, Latin; Ellen Crabb, health and social care; Amber Wadey, food tech; Katie Bremner, geography; Isabel Green, English; Millie Webb, PE girls; Chris Bates, Spanish; Joe Frost, vocational; Sam Miles, business studies; Jacasta Townend, dance; Ruth Allam, German; Oliver de Savigny, music; Phoebe Gray, French; Sam Samll, electronics.
