The Vitality Stadium lit up with excitement last night. 

No, Bournemouth didn't defeat Southampton, it was the prom for Avonbourne Boys' and Girls' Academies. 

Students from Year 11 donned their best dresses and smartest suits as they celebrated the end of their time in secondary school. 

The Daily Echo was there to capture the event on camera.  

All the photos can be found above in a gallery. 

They are also available to purchase through our Photosales site

We have been publishing galleries and a selection of the images will appear in the Bournemouth Daily Echo in a picture special on Wednesday, July 20. 

Don't miss it!
