A spokesman for the school, part of the TEAM Education Trust, said everyone had a lot of fun.

Students in Key Stage 5 wore Comic Relief T-shirts or came in fancy dress. Supported by their teacher, Linda Hall, the students took timeout to join in the fun.

Rachel Watson, associate principal, said: “Comic Relief Day is always enjoyable at Stubbin Wood and it’s great to see how the staff and students set out to have fun while raising lots of money for this fabulous charity.

“We think it’s really important to think about others and how we can all do something positive to help.”
