Students coming to the end of their time at Sir John Leman High School, in Beccles, were treated to a stunning seafront fireworks display in Lowestoft on Friday, June 28.

The display capped off a night which saw students arrive at the Hotel Victoria in a vast array of transport, including a replica of K.I.T.T from Knight Rider.
