IT IS one of the most memorable evenings of a school pupils’ life.

Prom night is the occasion most students remember the most out of all their memories in education.

In 2015, The Mail covered the Ulverston Victoria High School prom night.

After the memorable night in 2014, the following year saw 150 Year 11 pupils from the High School dressed to impress for the school’s annual leavers’ celebration.

The atmosphere was a joyous one and for many this was the evening they had been looking forward to and preparing for months in advance.

The rain held off just long enough for pupils to make the journey from Ulverston and enjoy drinks on the hotel’s terrace, where they took snapshots aplenty, cutting sharp figures in their evening dresses and suits.

The night's fun wasn’t just reserved for the teenagers, members of staff were also in attendance to join the celebration.

The evening, organised jointly by head of year Amanda Cooper and a group of Year 11 pupils, also gave teachers the chance to celebrate the end of the academic year with their students.

Among the activities on the cards for the lucky teens were a formal dinner and speeches from the head boy, head girl and deputies, as well as the opportunity to throw some shapes on the dance floor.

The students made sure their night quite literally went out with a bang, as they were treated to an impressive firework display.

Mrs Cooper confirmed that pupils had really enjoyed getting dressed up for the occasion, saying: “Everyone looked amazing. They had an absolutely fantastic time.”

In that same year, it was the turn of the teenagers from Chetwynde School to don their glad rags and enjoy the high life.

Elegant evening gowns and smart suits were the order of the day for the formal occasion at Clarence House Country Hotel and Restaurant in Dalton.

Several Evening Mail photographers were also in attendance school proms across south Cumbria as pupils get ready for their proms.
