Young people from St Mary’s school and college, Wrestwood Road, Bexhill dressed in their finest to celebrate the annual leavers Prom.

The evening began with a soiree, with nibbles and mocktails for leavers and their parents, at the on-site Aspire vocational at St Mary’s. The Prom King and Queen, who were chosen by a secret ballot, were announced as William and Caroline respectively. At the end of the soiree parents were sent home and leavers were chauffeured in limousines to the Manor Barn, Bexhill Old Town for the main event.

After the formalities ended, the disco started and Sue Cheshire, Assistant Head at St Mary’s, says students St Mary’s staff danced the night away. “Everyone had learned and performed a special choreographed dance to I’ll be there by Jess Glynn,” she said. “This was a real success and hi-light of the evening.

“An amazing night was had by everyone.

“Thank you to the St Mary’s team who pulled together to make this a night to remember for the pupils.

“Without the help and co-operation of the St Mary’s staff events like this would be impossible to put on.”
