The glamorous crowd arrived on the red carpet in style in vehicles ranging from a royal horse and carriage to a go kart.

The theme of 'Frank Sinatra's A Swingin' Affair' saw students don ballroom dresses and bowties to dance the night away with their dates.

Jocelyn Whittle, PA at Soham Village College, said: "The red carpet saw students parade their outfits and pose for a professional photo.

"It was lovely to see the students catching up with one another and appreciating each other's outfits in the sunshine.
