About 35 pupils from Cleethorpes Academy gathered yesterday outside Pleasure Island in their ball gowns and tuxes to celebrate the end of their years at school.
Travelling in style, they made their way to their prom venue at Forest Pines Hotel near Scunthorpe, in a classic double decker bus.
Hollie McGrath, 16, organised the transport with friends at school.
She said: "It looked amazing and we were all really excited.
"I have loved getting glamorous for one night. The best part has been having my hair and make-up done.
"I feel sad to be finally leaving school, but I am glad I get to celebrate at the prom with all my friends."
Hollie's mum Dianne McGrath said: "I have had a son go through his prom, but getting a daughter ready is totally different.
"All the girls and boys looked wonderful. It is nice for them to have a this special night."
The students enjoyed a sit-down meal at the hotel, followed by a disco to dance the night away.
