They celebrated together with a disco and buffet, before a whole year photo in one of the football club’s stands.

Olivia Greaves and Kieran Bird were crown prom queen and king.

Marcelle Claxton from the school said: “It went really well. It’s the first time we’ve done it at the football club and it allowed the pupils to make their grand entrance.”
