Students have been showing off their stunning ball gowns and sharp suits and tuxedos as they hit the dance floor to celebrate the start of summer.

Pupils from Bristnall Hall Academy in Oldbury

It’s that time of year again when students turn on the glitz for a special night out to mark the end of the school or college year.

And the Express & Star wants to see pictures of you getting dressed up to the nines or arriving in style at your venue.

  • Please email you photographs to with your name, email, location and a short description of the picture.

Every year, the prom tradition is continuing to grow in both popularly and scale in this country following the trend across the pond in America.

This year pupils have gone all out once again to get glammed up to ensure they make it a night to remember.

The Express & Star wants you to capture every part of your special night, including the transport to the venue and those stylish outfits.

More unusual snaps are also welcome, from matching prom dresses made for a pet to superhero tops hidden beneath shirts – we would love to see your quirky ideas sent in.

It’s not just proud parents and happy students who can get involved, teachers are also welcome to submit pictures of their pupils.


And it seems no expense has been spared in ensuring pupils have made entrances worthy of a red carpet arrival at a movie premiere.

Among those getting all dressed up this year were students from Bristnall Hall Academy in Oldbury who held their prom at Malmaison Birmingham.

They are following in the footsteps of the class of 2017 who dressed to impress including students of Walton High School who enjoyed a leavers prom at Cannock Chase Golf Club at Pottal Pool.

Many students arrived in sports cars and limousines – but a great night was had by all as these young people began the next chapter in their lives.


Sir Graham Balfour’s year 11s celebrated their big day at The Moat House in Acton Trussell.

Students and staff alike enjoyed a wonderful evening of fine food and dancing – a very fitting end to celebrate the end of the school year.

At the same venue, students from Stafford’s King Edward VI and Wolgarston High School in Penkridge enjoyed the evening next to the picturesque scenery.

They were among dozens of promgoers who shared snaps of their big night last summer and we want more of you to follow in their footsteps.
