A stylish end of an era


Having completed their exams, the Year 11 students of Robertsbridge Community College celebrated in style at their Leavers’ Prom in the Montgomerie Suite of the Bannatyne Hotel in Hastings.

Around 100 students took part and following arrival drinks and photos they sat down to a three course supper followed by dancing until nearly midnight.

Ball gowns and tuxedos cry out for smart arrivals and there was an impressive array of flash sports cars and stylish limos delivering students to the door.

One young couple were even treated to a spectacular arrival by private helicopter.

A spokesperson for Robertsbridge Community College said: “It was a delightful finale to five years had work, enjoyed just as much by the staff attending as by the students themselves.

“We wish all this year’s leavers every success in the future and remind them to keep in touch.”
