Pupils and staff spent the day celebrating literature.

Students enjoyed guest performances from Sarah Mussi, author of Here Be Dragons, and renowned performance poet Antosh Wojcik who created My Mum Is A Lollypop Lady.

Throughout the day, a wide range of literary activities were put on for students.

Some of the sessions included dystopia in history, Frankenstein in science and debating.

Pupils created a Hunger Games quiz and a big book swap was organised so pupils could exchanged books they had already read.

The English staff got into the spirit of the day with costumes ranging from Huckleberry Finn to Dr Jekyll.
