Little Red Riding Hood, Harry Potter and Maleficent were among the characters who turned up to school as part of the festivities, alongside the entire cast of Mr Men and characters from Dr Seuss books.

The annual World Book Day is a celebration of books, authors, illustrators and reading, which aims to ignite imaginations and help students gain a lifelong passion for reading.

Each student and member of staff who dressed up made a 50p donation to the Book Bus charity, which aims to improve child literacy rates in Africa, Asia and South America by providing children with books and the inspiration to read them.

Mrs K Allen, Lead Practitioner, said: “Staff and Year 7 and 8 students were invited to dress up as characters from their favourite books as part of the celebrations to mark World Book Day.

“It was a very enjoyable day, with some fantastic costumes on show, but most importantly it gave us a chance to inspire our students and ignite a lifelong love of books and reading.”
