However unique you want your entry at your school’s last day prom to be, nyou probably cannot beat this teenager.

16-year-old Brennan Boys made a dramatic entrance at his school prom in his grandfather’s 17-ton armoured vehicle.

Yes, you heard it right!

Brennan stunned his classmates when he entered in the 17-ton armoured vehicle at the end of year celebration for Year 11 pupils from Alder Grange School in Rawtenstall, Greater Manchester.

However, according to the school, this was not the most bizarre entry the school has seen. Earlier, one student arrived in a coffin.

Well, we guess arriving in a tank was definitely memorable.

Brennan got this love for unorthodox means of transport from his grandfather. Brian, 80, is an avid collector of military vehicles.

"I came up with the idea about a month ago and wondered if it’d be possible to go to the prom in one. ‘I’ve been inside some of the tanks before but haven’t been driven in one, I really enjoyed it – I’m really grateful for my granddad for organising it all. I was overwhelmed with the reaction we had pulling into the Higher Trapp, everyone was lined up taking photos and filming it.

"I’d told some of my friends and they told others, but some of the years had no idea and were really shocked. I think it’s probably one of the unique ways the school has had of getting to the prom," Brennan told a daily.

This tank, which has previously been used in action and driven by an ex-RAF pilot, but has since been ‘deactivated’ is 30-year-old.

Brian, who is a former military policeman has been collecting vehicles for many years and his haul includes WW2 American Jeeps, a 55-tonne battle tank and two tanks which were also used in the film Saving Private Ryan.
