Children in Need

To support this year’s Children in Need event each year group took up a different challenge.

Year 7 took part in a glow in the dark dance-a-thon which continued non-stop for the entirety of the school day. Every single pupil in Year 7 danced for at least an hour each. Miss Yates and Mrs Ingham were very proud of them all.

Year 8 enjoyed a non-uniform day with a superhero theme which was organised by their Head of Year, Mrs Croft, who herself spent the day dressed as a wonderful buzzy bee!

Year 9 really stepped up and produced a mountain of cakes to sell at break and lunchtime. Mr Wooff was so proud of his year group who raised a whopping £300 on cakes alone.

A number of pupils from Year 10 and Year 11 also put in a big effort in their respective spin-a-thon and row-a-thon activities. The objective was to work as a team to cycle and row for a full day. Well done to their year heads Ms Hussain and Mr Jackson.

In addition to the pupil activities staff dressed up in spots and silly specs for a ‘Spot-acular, Spec-tacular’ theme and the canteen made lots of Pudsey themed treats. Mr Higham even helped staff to make their specs in an after school design session!

A special mention needs to be given to the following pupils for additional efforts on the day.

The final ‘all time record’ amount raised, was £1,482.36.
