The atmosphere in school was lovely with a real sense of community and social action amongst teachers and staff.

Headteacher Paddy Russell said: "The Christmas Markets were wonderful. 

"They were organised almost entirely by our learners to raise money for a cause that they feel passionate about - to support people affected by the floods in Pakistan. 

"The compassion, creativity, and agency demonstrated by our learners was incredible. 

"Our learners are now looking at ways to raise money for charities supporting the response to the earthquake in Turkey and Syria."
