Stretch limousines, horse-drawn carriages, vintage buses and pink Cadillacs are just some of the colourful forms of transport bringing teenagers to their dress-to-impress occasions.

The girls at Meole Brace Science College's prom arrived at the Hawkstone Park venue by vintage bus, and were joined in their photoshoot by a local bodybuilder, dressed in Chippendales-style black tie.

Newport's Burton Borough School, meanwhile, held its prom at another historic county mansion Lilleshall Hall. Rio Day and her friend Molly Ball arrived in style, in a horse-drawn carriage supplied by John Hendy from Cherrington, and Rob Sykes.

Thomas Telford School put on a great show at the Telford Hotel & Golf resort at Great Hay, where Nikita Shoker was crowned Prom Queen.

Students from Shrewsbury's The Grange School turned back the clock and turned up the glamour for their vintage-themed prom night. The Year 11 pupils, who leave The Grange at the end of this term took an old fashioned theme for their event.

Headteacher Rob Hatch said hundreds of parents and friends turned out to cheer the youngsters as they arrived in various modes of transport.

"The event has a wonderful community feel about it as it is probably the only prom in the area held on school premises," said Mr Hatch.

"Both staff and students from The Grange put in a great deal of effort for the night and transformed the hall and canteen to fit in with the whole vintage theme.

"The students themselves looked wonderful with the boys in their tuxedos and the girls in some amazing ballgowns."

Old-fashioned buses, a vintage Rolls-Royce, a Ferrari and a decorated 1970s VW camper van were just some of the forms of transport which arrived in the grounds to drop off pupils.
