Teenagers spend hours looking forward to their end of school prom night and finding what to wear to impress their friends.

And now one Norfolk high school is helping its students make sure they have a night they won't forget by setting up a prom night clothes initiative.

Fakenham Academy is calling on people in the town to donate preloved prom outfits, jewellery and shoes to a special pop-up shop to help all students attend the end-of-year event.

The shop, opening for one day on May 2, is aimed to make sure no Year 11 students miss the opportunity to say goodbye to their high school friends as they set off on the next chapter of their lives.

The Fakenham school is hoping to tackle the often very expensive bill that comes with prom night dresses and suits.

The cost means some students either do not attend or their families potentially get into debt.

Fakenham Academy says it believes that no teenager should miss their prom because they can’t afford an outfit.

Deborah Cubbin, student liaison manager, said: "Our pop-up shop will be available to any students and provide a free prom outfit lending service. 

“The shop will allow our students to spend time browsing and trying on outfits as well as shoes and accessories.

“Our shop will allow all students who choose to visit, a welcoming, fun, non-judgemental evening, and with the help of the community, each young person will come out of the experience with an outfit and accessories to go to their prom in style."

The school is asking for clothes of any colour or size - but they need to be in good condition. 

Donations can be made up until May 2, and either be dropped off at the academy reception or handed in at EACH Charity shop, in Fakenham, - with a clear label stating they are for Fakenham Academy.

The school is also asking if anyone is interested in hosting hair and make-up tutorials for students. If you can help, email deborah.cubbin@fakenhamacademy.org
