Organised by sixth-form students, each house was challenged to a cake-making competition which encouraged children across the school to enter hundreds of cakes.

Sixth-formers selected 21 ‘showstopper’ cakes that were entered into a raffle.

Headteacher Tim Litchfield said: “This was one of our best coffee mornings ever and I am incredibly proud of our school.

“The quality and volume of baking would rival any Macmillan Coffee Morning in the country I am sure. The other aspect of the morning that was very impressive was that it was purely student led operation.

“The senior students organised, communicated and delivered a brilliant event to over 1,500 people. Well done to everyone involved.”

The winners of the house cake-making competition were Sophia Botterman, and Crellin House for having the most students bring in cake and for making the best entry.

Senior students said the event was once again a huge success, and thanked students and teachers across the school for their efforts.

The school raised £2,848 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
