STUDENTS from across South Essex donned their glad rags to celebrate the end of their secondary school journeys.

Here, we show pupils from schools including Woodlands School, Basildon, Castle View School, Canvey, Belfairs Academy, Leigh, and more, getting ready for one of the most highly anticipated events of school life... the prom.

All looked amazing on the night, dressing to impress, before being whisked away to mark the end of the last five years in style.

Well done to all the students for their hard work and success.
