Glammed-up school friends from Wales made an unforgettable entrance to their end of year prom. 

The group of Year 11 pupils, from Gwynedd, decided to go down an untraditional root by swapping the classic limousine for tractors. 

As many pupils in the area come from farming backgrounds, the mixed group of boys and girls, decided to celebrate their roots.

Making a fitting end to their GCSE year, the group showcased their farming roots, and those who had already passed their tractor driving tests drove their friends on the big day. 

Tractor driving tests can be sat by anyone aged 16 and over. 

The students got the idea after they started passing their tests earlier in the school year.

The students from rural secondary school Ysgol Botwnnog on the Llyn Penninsula decorated the tractors with ribbons and bows. 

Crowds lined the streets and cheered as the convoy passed by on its way to prom at the local Nant Gwrtheyrn venue. 

The down-to-earth approach was a departure from some of the more lavish displays that have become synonymous with prom night.  

The industry promoting and supporting British school proms is calculated at £90 million a year.

Some fork out for hummers and horse-drawn carriages to ferry them to the bash. while others have even been transported by helicopter.
