The students - decked out in fancy dress - held cake stalls at break time, completed sponsored silences and even had pies thrown at them to help boost their fundraising.

And the bank’s generous donation has pushed the total up towards a staggering £2,000.

Jackie Harding, from the school, said: “They had a very good day and we raised much more than we expected to. The students really took it on board and we are delighted that the bank have given us that bonus.”
