The students arrived at the Park Hotel in Barnstaple on Friday night in everything from limousines to tractors and some even came on horseback. Everyone was dressed like superstars, with a formal meal followed by an evening of dancing. Head of year, Naresh Patel, said: The evening had a touch of sadness to it as I watched the children that I first met five years ago really blossom into young adults. However the main feeling that I had was a huge sense of pride as I now see them all go off into the big wide world. I feel that the prom will be a memory that many cherish for years to come.
