TEENAGERS dressed to the nines and enjoyed their annual school prom.
The Year 11 pupils at Dene Community School of Technology, in Peterlee, marked the end of their school life in fantastic fashion.
The girls stole the show as they arrived in a range of glamorous ball gowns to the event at Hardwick Hall, in Sedgefield.
But not to be outdone, the lads dressed to impress in their suits and tuxedos.
After the exams and hard work, the prom was a chance for the pupils to let their hair down.
The youngsters posed for pictures before heading inside to enjoy the rest of their evening.
