There was a special delivery for teachers at this year’s Soham Village College after a student had himself packaged up and delivered to his own prom!

Having been carefully wheeled up to the entrance by a courier, and signed for by unsuspecting staff, the student then burst from his box to get his celebrations under way in style.

Held on Friday at the Sand Street school, the prom saw dozens of Year 11 students don their best bow ties, suits and dresses for the end-of-school bash.

Arriving in style has become as important as wearing the right outfit to teenagers in recent years and there was no shortage of spectacular vehicles on show as a crowd of well-wishers looked on.

Even the inclement weather didn’t dampen spirits as pupils arrived in a stunning array of super cars, limousines and classic vehicles.
