Sixth-formers from Freman College in Buntingford also arrived in style at Cottered Village Hall.
On arrival they were given champagne, and then danced the night away.
Avril Taylor, head of the sixth form, said: "It was a lovely evening.
"They will be sad to leave, but are looking forward to the next stage in their lives."
Any money left over from the evening will be donated to Bicycles for Rwanda, which is the school's chosen charity for this year.
Each bicycle costs £200, and so far the school has enough to buy five.
The bicycles will enable young people to get around, with seats on the back so they can earn money as a taxi service.

A committee of students raised £2,500 for the event through a fashion show and college disco.
