The party was a chance for young people to showcase their skills cultivated at the school’s garden patch.

Janice Holdich, PSHE teacher, said: “Students from years eight and nine do a great job growing in the school garden, this is an annual event that gives us a chance to thank local organisations who support our work.

“New for this year is that volunteer garden students have also helped set up a new garden area for youngsters at Westwood junior which has been a really useful team effort between both schools.

“The rain bucketed down for this year’s garden party so we held it indoors instead but it didn’t stop everybody enjoying the dishes on offer.”
