To celebrate the charity's 25th anniversary, the school we decided to have a week of celebrations ending with a Harry Potter themed day on Thursday. Staff dressed up in Harry Potter style costumes and some lessons took a Harry Potter theme.

In English, there was a Hogwart’s House activity, in Geography students practiced their ‘Marauders’ map skills and in PSHE, pupils applied their learning on healthy eating to planning Harry Potter themed menus.

It didn’t stop there! In PE, students got to experience an improvised version of Quidditch and in Food & Nutrition pupils made Butter Beer.

There were quizzes and activities throughout the day, including a Harry Potter themed French vocabulary word hunt.

Finally, to support the drive to promote a love of reading, there was a rolling story that was incorporated into all lessons throughout the day.

Jayne Abbott, PA to the Principal, said: "A great day was had by all, and we are very grateful to the staff for planning the additional activities and making it a day to remember for our extraordinary pupils."
