Sun shines on prom-goers

STUDENTS enjoyed the glamour of the biggest event on the school calendar last night.

Lads looking the part in their suits and girls stealing the show with an impressive array of frocks celebrated their time at High Tunstall College of Science at the school’s prom at Hardwick Hall.

The recent rain held off as the students smiled for photographs outside before enjoying the end-of-year event.

Hundreds of students across Hartlepool and East Durham have enjoyed their proms and there’s still more to come.

The Hartlepool Mail and Peterlee Star will continue to cover every event and you can order copies of photographs which are taken on the night.

Dozens more photographs will appear in a bumper proms supplement.

Photos from Hartlepool schools will appear in the Mail with East Durham proms appearing in the newly re-launched Peterlee Star.

These supplements will be published once the proms season ends in the middle of July.
