OH what a night! Students celebrated the end of their school days when they partied the night away at their prom.
Teenagers from Shotton Hall School, in Peterlee, enjoyed the occasion in the plush Beamish Hall country house last night.
The girls sparkled in their glamorous ball gowns while the lads looked sharp in their suits and tuxedos.
The night was a chance for the Year 11 students to let their hair down after a year of hard work.
Thousands of youngsters from Hartlepool and east Durham will have their proms over the next few days.
The Mail will publish hundreds of prom pictures taken by our photographers later this month in a bumper supplement.
There will also be a full page of pictures from this week’s proms in Monday’s Mail.
