    Didn't go to mine. Personally thought it was a waste of time, effort and money. It's the same reason I didn't go to leavers last year and any of the balls. Saved myself over £100 in total as well in doing so, and therefore this can be more well spent. It can contribute towards a holiday which is something I'd much rather do.

    I did but I hated it. The only good part was seeing all my teachers really drunk.

    They attended, there was a bar, they are adults, they enjoyed a drink. 18+ students could also drink.

    But to answer your question a rather bog standard comprehensive, which was fairly highly achieving in comparison to local schools..

    We had one but I hated it. I felt so guilty because my family had spent so much to get me what I wanted and then the day fell flat.

    However, I have a friend from Lothian who had someone in the sixth year sleep with one of the teachers when they were both drunk. She was fired. I think that may explain the fact that someone thought Scottish schools didn't have proms.

    The Y11 one was pretty mediocre to be honest... the only good part was when everyone was singing Wonderwall at the end of the night :lol:

    I'm involved in organising the leavers' do for the end of this year (Y13) and that should be MUCH better :cute:

    I really enjoyed our proms, but that might just be because I was at a girls school and we all got on relatively well with one another

    Pretty bad. They charged us £30, to sit in a hotel, eating party food with rubbish music on in the background.
    Exactly what my prom was like but they only gave us around 30 minutes to eat food.

    Didn't have one because I went (and still go to) a stingy all-girls' school.

    I went to my primary school one, though.

    I went but it was rubbish tbh, the best part was getting ready with my friends before or eating McDonald's at 2am on the way home

    Nah, I didn't go to mine. I stayed at home, ate some curry and watched DVDs instead, no regrets
    The fact you said no regrets when nobody asked if you did suggests otherwise..
